JOHN 3:14-21

14. ``As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; 15. so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life. 16. ``For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17. ``For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18. ``He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19. ``This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. 20. ``For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21. ``But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."

JOHN 2:13-22

13. The Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14. And He found in the temple those who were selling oxen and sheep and doves, and the money changers seated at their tables. 15. And He made a scourge of cords, and drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and the oxen; and He poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables; 16. and to those who were selling the doves He said, ``Take these things away; stop making My Father's house a place of business." 17. His disciples remembered that it was written, ``ZEAL FOR YOUR HOUSE WILL CONSUME ME." 18. The Jews then said to Him, ``What sign do You show us as your authority for doing these things?" 19. Jesus answered them, ``Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." 20. The Jews then said, ``It took forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in three days?" 21. But He was speaking of the temple of His body. 22. So when He was raised from the dead, His disciples remembered that He said this; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had spoken.

MARK 8:31-38

31. And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32. And He was stating the matter plainly. And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him. 33. But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and said, ``Get behind Me, Satan; for you are not setting your mind on God's interests, but man's." 34. And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, ``If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. 35. ``For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel's will save it. 36. ``For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? 37. ``For what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 38. ``For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels."

MARK 9:2-9

2. Six days later, Jesus took with Him Peter and James and John, and brought them up on a high mountain by themselves. And He was transfigured before them; 3. and His garments became radiant and exceedingly white, as no launderer on earth can whiten them. 4. Elijah appeared to them along with Moses; and they were talking with Jesus. 5. Peter said to Jesus, ``Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three tabernacles, one for You, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah." 6. For he did not know what to answer; for they became terrified. 7. Then a cloud formed, overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud, ``This is My beloved Son, listen to Him!" 8. All at once they looked around and saw no one with them anymore, except Jesus alone. 9. As they were coming down from the mountain, He gave them orders not to relate to anyone what they had seen, until the Son of Man rose from the dead.

MARK 1:29-39

29. And immediately after they came out of the synagogue, they came into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30. Now Simon's mother-in-law was lying sick with a fever; and immediately they spoke to Jesus about her. 31. And He came to her and raised her up, taking her by the hand, and the fever left her, and she waited on them. 32. When evening came, after the sun had set, they began bringing to Him all who were ill and those who were demon-possessed. 33. And the whole city had gathered at the door. 34. And He healed many who were ill with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He was not permitting the demons to speak, because they knew who He was. 35. In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there. 36. Simon and his companions searched for Him; 37. they found Him, and said to Him, ``Everyone is looking for You." 38. He said to them, ``Let us go somewhere else to the towns nearby, so that I may preach there also; for that is what I came for." 39. And He went into their synagogues throughout all Galilee, preaching and casting out the demons.

ISAIAH 54:1-8

1. ``Shout for joy, O barren one, you who have borne no child; Break forth into joyful shouting and cry aloud, you who have not travailed; For the sons of the desolate one will be more numerous Than the sons of the married woman," says the LORD. 2. ``Enlarge the place of your tent; Stretch out the curtains of your dwellings, spare not; Lengthen your cords And strengthen your pegs. 3. ``For you will spread abroad to the right and to the left. And your descendants will possess nations And will resettle the desolate cities. 4. ``Fear not, for you will not be put to shame; And do not feel humiliated, for you will not be disgraced; But you will forget the shame of your youth, And the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more. 5. ``For your husband is your Maker, Whose name is the LORD of hosts; And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth. 6. ``For the LORD has called you, Like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, Even like a wife of one's youth when she is rejected," Says your God. 7. ``For a brief moment I forsook you, But with great compassion I will gather you. 8. ``In an outburst of anger I hid My face from you for a moment, But with everlasting lovingkindness I will have compassion on you," Says the LORD your Redeemer.

MARK 1:1-28

1. The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. 2. As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: ``BEHOLD, I SEND MY MESSENGER AHEAD OF YOU, WHO WILL PREPARE YOUR WAY; 3. THE VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, `MAKE READY THE WAY OF THE LORD, MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT.'" 4. John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 5. And all the country of Judea was going out to him, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins. 6. John was clothed with camel's hair and wore a leather belt around his waist, and his diet was locusts and wild honey. 7. And he was preaching, and saying, ``After me One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to stoop down and untie the thong of His sandals. 8. ``I baptized you with water; but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit." 9. In those days Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10. Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; 11. and a voice came out of the heavens: ``You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased." 12. Immediately the Spirit impelled Him to go out into the wilderness. 13. And He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan; and He was with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to Him. 14. Now after John had been taken into custody, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, 15. and saying, ``The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel." 16. As He was going along by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew, the brother of Simon, casting a net in the sea; for they were fishermen. 17. And Jesus said to them, ``Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men." 18. Immediately they left their nets and followed Him. 19. Going on a little farther, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who were also in the boat mending the nets. 20. Immediately He called them; and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went away to follow Him. 21. They went into Capernaum; and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and began to teach. 22. They were amazed at His teaching; for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. 23. Just then there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, 24. saying, ``What business do we have with each other, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are--the Holy One of God!" 25. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, ``Be quiet, and come out of him!" 26. Throwing him into convulsions, the unclean spirit cried out with a loud voice and came out of him. 27. They were all amazed, so that they debated among themselves, saying, ``What is this? A new teaching with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him." 28. Immediately the news about Him spread everywhere into all the surrounding district of Galilee.

JOHN 1:43-51

43. The next day He purposed to go into Galilee, and He found Philip. And Jesus said to him, ``Follow Me." 44. Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter. 45. Philip found Nathanael and said to him, ``We have found Him of whom Moses in the Law and also the Prophets wrote--Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." 46. Nathanael said to him, ``Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, ``Come and see." 47. Jesus saw Nathanael coming to Him, and said of him, ``Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!" 48. Nathanael said to Him, ``How do You know me?" Jesus answered and said to him, ``Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you." 49. Nathanael answered Him, ``Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel." 50. Jesus answered and said to him, ``Because I said to you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these." 51. And He said to him, ``Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see the heavens opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."
