It happened in those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized in the Jordan by John. At once going up out of the water he saw the sky torn open and the Spirit like a dove descending to him. There was a voice out of the sky "You are my Son the loved one. In you I have delighted." At once the Spirit drove him into the desert. He was in the desert forty days tried by Satan and was with wild beasts.
At the start was the Word. The Word was with God and God was the Word—he was at the start with God. Everything came to be through him and apart from him nothing that has come came to be. In him was life. The life was the light of humankind. The light shines in the dark and the dark didn't quench it.
