Genesis 12:1-5

1Now Jehovah said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee: 2and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and become thou a blessing: 3and I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and by thee shall all families of the soil bless themselves. 4So Abram departed, as Jehovah had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. 5And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the persons that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of
Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.

Mark 1:9-13

9Now it happened at that time that Jesus came from Nazaret in Galilee, and was baptized in the Jordan by John. 10And straightway, as He came up out of the water, He saw the Heavens cleaving asunder and the Spirit descending as a dove unto Him; 11and a Voice was heard out of the Heavens, "Thou art my Son, the Beloved: with Thee I am greatly pleased."
12And straightway the Spirit impels Him to retreat into the desert. 13And He was in the desert for many weeks, being put to the test by Satan; and He was with the wild beasts, and the angels from time to time ministered to His needs.

John 1:1-5

1In the Beginning there existed the Divine Reason, and the Divine Reason was with God, and the Divine Reason was God. 2This Divine Reason at the Beginning was in closest relation with God. 3Through the Divine Reason all things came into being; and apart therefrom there was not brought into being even a single thing which has come to exist. 4In the Divine Reason there subsisted Life; and that Life was the spiritual Light of mankind. 5And the Light shone, and still shines, in the spiritual Darkness, and the Darkness has not overpowered it.

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

1Now I go on to acquaint you, Brothers, with the Good News which I imparted to you, the Good News which you also received, on which you also take your stand, 2and through which you are also on the way to Salvation to acquaint you, I say, in what terms I imparted the Good News to you (if you retain in mind what I said), unless you became Believers to no purpose. 3For I transmitted to you, amongst the foremost matters requiring your attention, the account which I myself had received from others, that Christ died for our sins, as foretold by the Scriptures; 4that He was buried, and that He was raised to Life it was on the second day afterwards, as foretold in the Scriptures; 5that He appeared to Kephas; then to the "Twelve"; 6next, He appeared to above five hundred Brothers all at one time, of whom the greater number survive until now, though some have passed to their rest. 7Later, He appeared to James; and then to all the Apostles. 8And last of all, He appeared to me also, as to the abortion among the Apostolic family.
