9This is how it happened. Around that time, Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee, and was baptized by John in the river Jordan. 10That very moment, as he was getting out of the water, he saw the heavens open, and the spirit coming down like a dove onto him. 11Then there came a voice, out of the heavens: "You are my son! You are the one I love! You make me very glad."
12All at once the spirit pushed him out into the desert. 13He was in the desert forty days, and the satan tested him there. He was with the wild beasts, and angels waited on him.
1In the beginning was the Word. The Word was close beside God, and the Word was God. 2In the beginning, he was close beside God.
3All things came into existence through him; not one things that exists came into existence without him. 4Life was in him, and this life was the light of the human race. 5The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.
1 Corinthians 15:1-8
1Let me remind you, brothers and sisters, about the good news which I announced to you. You received this good news, and you're standing firm on it, 2and you are saved through it, if you hold fast the message I announced to you — unless it was for nothing that you believed!
3What I handed on to you at the beginning, you see, was what I received, namely this: "The Messiah died for our sins in accordance with the Bible; 4he was buried; he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Bible; 5he was seen by Cephas, then by the Twelve; 6then he was seen by over five hundred brothers and sisters at once, most of them are still with us, though some fell asleep; then he was seen by James, then by all the apostles; 8and, last of all, as to one ripped from the womb, he appeared even to me."
