Mark 1:9-13

9 And it came to pass in those days, that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptiz'd of John in Jordan.
10 And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens open'd, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him:
11 And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in thee I am well pleas'd.
12 And immediately the spirit driveth him into the wilderness.
13And he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan, and was with the wild beasts, and the angels ministered unto him.

John 1:1-5

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness apprehended it not.
