Mark 1:9-13

9And in those days came Jesus of Nazareth in Galilee, and was baptized by John in Jordan: 10and, as he went up out of the water, John saw the heavens open, and the spirit, like a dove, coming down upon him. 11And a voice issued from the heavens: Thou art my son, that beloved son, in whom I am well pleased.
12And immediately the spirit leadeth out Jesus into the wilderness: 13and he continued there in the wilderness forty days, tried by Satan, and amongst the wild beasts: and the angels ministered unto him.

John 1:1-5

1In the beginning was Wisdom, and Wisdom was with God, and Wisdom was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by it, and without it was nothing made. 4What was made, had life in it; and this life was the light of men: 5and this light shineth in darkness, and the darkness hindered it not.

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

1Now I wish you to consider, brethren! to what purpose I preacht these glad tidings, which I did preach unto you, which also ye received, and on which ye stand, 2and by which ye must be saved; if ye maintain them not: for then ye believed in vain.

3For I delivered unto you as a principal thing, such as I indeed received it, that Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures; 4and that he was buried, and that he was raised to life on the third day, according to the scriptures; 5and that he was seen by Cephas, and then by the twelve. 6Afterwards he was seen by above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part is yet alive, though some are fallen asleep. 7Afterwards he was seen by James, and then by all the apostles. 8Now last of all, he was seen by me also, as the one born out of due time.
