Mark 1:9-13

9Now at that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
10And immediately on coming out of the water, he saw the heavens rent asunder, and the SPIRIT descending upon him, like as it were a dove.
11And a voice from Heaven, said, "Thou are My dearly beloved Son, in whom I delight!"
12And at once he was impelled by the SPIRIT to go into the desert.
13And he remained there in the wilderness forty days, tempted by the adversary, and among the wild beasts; and angels ministered unto him.

4In the GOD-Idea Life, GOD, was manifest, and Life, GOD was the Light of men.
5And the Light shineth in darkness; but the darkness comprehendeth it not.

5and that he was seen by Cephas, and then by the twelve apostles.
6After that he was seen by about five hundren brethren at one time; of whom the greater number are still living, but some have fallen asleep.
7After that, he was seen by James; then by all the Apostles;
8and last of all, he was seen by me also, as by one of untimely birth;
