Mark 1:9-13

And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John at the Jordan. And immediately on coming up from the water, he saw the heavens cleft asunder, and the Spirit as a dove descending upon him; and there came a voice from the heavens, "Thou art my Son, my Beloved One: in thee I have delight." Then immediately the Spirit drove him away into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered to him.

John 1:1-5

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was the Word. This was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him; and apart from him not even a single thing came into being. That which came to be by him, was life; and the Life was the light of men. And the light is shining in the darkness; and the darkness hath not overcome it.

1 Corinthians 15:1-8

Now, brethren, I declare to you the Good-tidings which I have announced to you, which also ye have received, and in which ye are established, and through which ye are being saved, (that is, by the word which we declared to you,) if ye hold it fast; unless indeed ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you among the first things, what also I had received, that Christ died on account of our sins, (in accordance with the Writings,) and that he was buried, and that he was raised up on the third day, (in accordance with the Writings;) and that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve; then he was seen by above five hundred brethren at once, (of whom the greater number continue until now, but some have fallen asleep;) then he was seen by James; then by all the apostles: and last of all, he was seen by me also, as an untimely birth.
