Mark 1:9-13

9Now it was in those days that Jesus arrived from Nazaret in Galilee and got baptized in the Jordan by John. 10And the moment he rose from the water he saw the heavens cleft and the Spirit coming down upon him like a dove; 11then said a voice from heaven, 'Thou art my Son, the Beloved, in thee is my delight.' 12Then the Spirit drove him immediately into the desert, 13and in the desert he remained for forty days, while Satan tempted him; he was in the company of wild beasts, but angels ministered to him.

John 1:1-5

1The Logos existed in the very beginning,
the Logos was with God,
the Logos was divine.
2He was with God in the very beginning:
3 through him all existence came into being,
no existence came into being apart from him.
4In him life lay,
and this life was the Light for men:
5amid the darkness the Light shone,
but the darkness did not master it.

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

1Now, brothers, I would have you know the gospel I once preached to you, the gospel you received, the gospel in which you have your footing, 2the gospel by which you are saved — provided you adhere to my statement of it — unless indeed your faith was all haphazard. 3 First and foremost, I passed on to you what I had myself received, namely, that Christ died for our sins as the scriptures had said, 4 that he was buried, that he rose on the third day as the scriptures had said, 5and that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve; 6 after that, he was seen by over five hundred brothers all at once, the majority of whom survive to this day, though some have died; 7 after that, he was seen by James, then by all the apostles, 8 and finally he was seen by myself, by this so-called 'abortion' of an apostle.
