Isaiah 9:6

John 1:1-51

1 In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He existed in the beginning with God. 3 Through him all things were made, and apart from him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life brought light to humanity. 5 And the light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify about the light, so that all might believe because of him. 8 John was not the light, but he came to testify about the light. 9 This was the true light that enlightens every person by his coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him. Yet the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to his own creation, yet his own people did not receive him. 12 However, to all who received him, those believing in his name, he gave authority to become God's children, 13 who were born, not merely in a genetic sense, nor from lust, nor from man's desire, but from the will of God. 14 The Word became flesh and lived among us. We gazed on his glory, the kind of glory that belongs to the Father's unique Son, who is full of grace and truth. 15 John told the truth about him when he cried out, "This is the person about whom I said, 'The one who comes after me ranks higher than me, because he existed before me.'" 16 We have all received one gracious gift after another from his abundance, 17 because while the Law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus the Messiah. 18 No one has ever seen God. The unique God, who is close to the Father's side, has revealed him. 19 This was John's testimony when the Jews sent priests and Levites to him from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?" 20 He spoke openly and, remaining true to himself, admitted, "I am not the Messiah." 21 So they asked him, "Well then, are you Elijah?" John said, "I am not." "Are you the Prophet?" He answered, "No." 22 Then they said to him, "Who are you? We must give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?" 23 He replied, "I am '…a voice crying out in the wilderness, "Prepare the Lord's highway,"' as the prophet Isaiah said." 24 Now those men had been sent from the Pharisees. 25 They asked him, "Why, then, are you baptizing if you are not the Messiah, or Elijah, or the Prophet?" 26 John answered them, "I am baptizing with water, but among you stands a man whom you do not know, 27 the one who is coming after me, whose sandal straps I am not worthy to untie." 28 This happened in Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is the one about whom I said, 'After me comes a man who ranks above me, because he existed before me.' 31 I didn't recognize him, but I came baptizing with water so that he might be revealed to Israel." 32 John also testified, "I saw the Spirit coming down from heaven like a dove, and it remained on him. 33 I didn't recognize him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, 'The person on whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.' 34 I have seen this and have testified that this is the Son of God." 35 The next day John was standing there again with two of his disciples. 36 As he watched Jesus walk by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!" 37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. 38 But when Jesus turned around and saw them following, he asked them, "What are you looking for?" They asked him, "Rabbi," (which is translated "Teacher"), "where are you staying?" 39 He told them, "Come and see!" So they went and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o'clock in the afternoon. 40 Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus. 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and say to him, "We have found the Messiah!" (which is translated "Christ"). 42 He led Simon to Jesus. Jesus looked at him intently and said, "You are Simon, John's son. You will be called Cephas!" (which is translated "Peter"). 43 The next day Jesus decided to go away to Galilee, where he found Philip and said to him, "Follow me." 44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the hometown of Andrew and Peter. 45 Philip found Nathaniel and told him, "We have found the man about whom Moses in the Law and the Prophets wrote {— } Jesus, the son of Joseph, from Nazareth." 46 Nathaniel asked him, "Out of Nazareth? Can anything good come from there?" Philip told him, "Come and see!" 47 Jesus saw Nathaniel coming toward him and said about him, "Look, a genuine Israelite, in whom there is no deceit!" 48 Nathaniel asked him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered him, "Before Philip called you, while you were under the fig tree, I saw you." 49 Nathaniel replied to him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!" 50 Jesus said to him, "Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than that." 51 Then he said to him, "Truly, I tell all of you with certainty, you will see heaven standing open and the angels of God going up and coming down to the Son of Man."

Matthew 19:1-30

1 When Jesus had finished saying these things, he left Galilee and went to the territory of Judea on the other side of the Jordan. 2 Large crowds followed him, and he healed them there. 3 Some Pharisees came to him in order to test him. They asked, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any reason?" 4 He answered them, "Haven't you read that the one who made them at the beginning 'made them male and female' 5 and said, 'That is why a man will leave his father and mother and be united with his wife, and the two will become one flesh'? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, man must never separate." 7 They asked him, "Why, then, did Moses order us 'to give a certificate of divorce and divorce her'?" 8 He said to them, "It was because of your hardness of heart that Moses allowed you to divorce your wives. But from the beginning it was not this way. 9 I tell you that whoever divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery." 10 His disciples said to him, "If that is the relationship of a man with his wife, it's not worth getting married!" 11 But he said to them, "Not everyone can accept this saying, except those to whom celibacy has been granted, 12 because some men are celibate from birth, while some are celibate because they have been made that way by others. Still others are celibate because they have made themselves that way for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Let anyone accept this who can." 13 Then some little children were brought to him so that he might lay his hands on them and pray. But the disciples rebuked those who brought them. 14 Jesus, however, said, "Let the little children come to me, and stop keeping them away, because the kingdom of heaven belongs to people like these." 15 When he had laid his hands on them, he went on from there. 16 Just then a man came up to Jesus and said, "Teacher, what good deed should I do to have eternal life?" 17 Jesus said to him, "Why ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you want to get into that life, you must keep the commandments." 18 The young man asked him, "Which ones?" Jesus said, "'You must not murder, you must not commit adultery, you must not steal, you must not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother,' and 'you must love your neighbor as yourself.'" 20 The young man said to him, "I have kept all of these. What do I still lack?" 21 Jesus said to him, "If you want to be perfect, go and sell what you own and give the money to the destitute, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come back and follow me." 22 But when the young man heard this statement he went away sad, because he had many possessions. 23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, "I tell you with certainty, it will be hard for a rich person to get into the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to squeeze through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to get into the kingdom of God." 25 When the disciples heard this, they were completely astonished and said, "Who, then, can be saved?" 26 Jesus looked at them intently and said, "For humans this is impossible, but for God all things are possible." 27 Then Peter said to him, "See, we have left everything and followed you. So what will we get?" 28 Jesus said to them, "I tell you with certainty, when the Son of Man sits on his glorious throne in the renewed creation, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, governing the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 In fact, everyone who has left his homes, brothers, sisters, father, mother, children, or fields because of my name will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life. 30 But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first."

Hebrews 6:1-20

1 Therefore, leaving behind the elementary teachings about the Messiah, let us continue to be carried along to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead actions, faith toward God, 2 instruction about baptisms, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment. 3 And this we will do, if God permits. 4 For it is impossible to keep on restoring to repentance time and again people who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have become partners with the Holy Spirit, 5 who have tasted the goodness of God's word and the powers of the coming age, 6 and who have fallen away, as long as they continue to crucify the Son of God to their own detriment by exposing him to public ridicule. 7 For when the ground soaks up rain that often falls on it and continues producing vegetation useful to those for whom it is cultivated, it receives a blessing from God. 8 However, if it continues to produce thorns and thistles, it is worthless and in danger of being cursed, and in the end will be burned. 9 Even though we speak like this, dear friends, we are convinced of better things in your case, things that point to salvation. 10 For God is not so unjust as to forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have ministered to the saints and continue to minister to them. 11 But we want each of you to continue to be diligent to the very end, in order to give full assurance to your hope. 12 Then, instead of being lazy, you will imitate those who are inheriting the promises through faith and patience. 13 For when God made his promise to Abraham, he swore an oath by himself, since he had no one greater to swear by. 14 He said, "I will certainly bless you and give you many descendants." 15 And so he obtained what he had been promised, because he patiently waited for it. 16 For people swear by someone greater than themselves, and an oath given as confirmation puts an end to all argument. 17 In the same way, when God wanted to make the unchangeable character of his purpose perfectly clear to the heirs of his promise, he guaranteed it with an oath, 18 so that by these two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to prove false, we who have taken refuge in him might be encouraged to seize the hope set before us. 19 That hope, firm and secure like an anchor for our souls, reaches behind the curtain 20 where Jesus, our forerunner, has gone on our behalf, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

Genesis 2:1-25

1 With this the heavens and the earth were completed, including all of their vast array. 2 By the seventh day God had completed the work he had been doing, so on the seventh day he stopped working on everything that he had done. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God stopped working on what he had been creating. 4 These are the records of how the heavens and the earth were created. On the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, 5 no shrubs had yet grown in the fields of the earth and no vegetation had sprouted, because the LORD God had not sent rain on the earth and there ware no human beings to work the ground. 6 Instead, an underground stream would rise from the earth and water the surface of the ground. 7 So the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground, breathed life into his lungs, and the man became a living being. 8 The LORD God planted a garden in Eden, toward the East, where he placed the man whom he had formed. 9 The LORD God caused every tree that is both beautiful and suitable for food to spring up out of the ground. The tree of life was also in the middle of the garden, along with the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10 A river flows from Eden to water the garden, and from there it divides, becoming four branches. 11 The name of the first one is Pishon {— } it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 The gold of that land is pure; bdellium and onyx are also found there. 13 The name of the second river is Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush. 14 The third river is named the Tigris; it flows to the east of Assyria. The fourth river is the Euphrates. 15 The LORD God took the man and placed him in the Garden of Eden in order to have him work it and guard it. 16 The LORD God commanded the man: "You may freely eat from every tree of the garden, 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, because you will certainly die during the day that you eat from it." 18 Later, the LORD God said, "It is not good for man to be alone. I will make for him a companion corresponding to him." 19 So after the LORD God formed from the ground every wild animal and every bird that flies, he brought each of them to the man to see what he would call it. Whatever the man called each living creature became its name. 20 The man gave names to all the livestock, to the birds that fly, and to every wild animal, but there was not found for the man any companion corresponding to him, 21 so the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man. When the man was asleep, he took one of the man's ribs, closed up the flesh in its place, 22 formed the rib that he had taken from the man into a woman, and then brought her to the man. 23 Later, the man remarked, "This at last is bone from my bones and flesh from my flesh. This one shall be called 'Woman,' because she was taken from Man." 24 Therefore a man will leave his father and his mother and cling to his wife, and they will become one flesh. 25 Both the man and his wife were naked, yet they were unashamed.

Hebrews 11:3

3 By faith we understand that time was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are invisible.

Genesis 1:3

3 God said, "Let there be light!" So there was light.

2 Peter 3:8

8 Don't forget this fact, dear friends: With the Lord a single day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a single day.

John 1:1

1 In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Isaiah 48:13

Genesis 1:1

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 1:1-31

1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 2 When the earth was unformed and desolate, with the surface of the ocean depths shrouded in darkness, and while the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters, 3 God said, "Let there be light!" So there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good. He separated the light from the darkness, 5 calling the light "day," and the darkness "night." The twilight and dawn were day one. 6 Then God said, "Let there be an expanse between the waters, separating water from water!" 7 So God made the expanse, separating the water beneath the expanse from the water above it. And so it was. 8 God called the expanse "sky." The twilight and the dawn were the second day. 9 Then God said, "Let the water beneath the sky come together into one area, and let dry ground appear!" And so it was. 10 God called the dry ground "land," and he called the water that had come together "oceans." And God saw how good it was. 11 Then God said, "Let vegetation sprout all over the earth, including seed-bearing plants and fruit trees, each kind containing its own seed!" And so it was: 12 Vegetation sprouted all over the earth, including seed-bearing plants and fruit trees, each kind containing its own seed. And God saw that it was good. 13 The twilight and the dawn were the third day. 14 Then God said, "Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to distinguish day from night, to act as signs for seasons, days, and years, 15 to serve as lights in the expanse of the sky, and to shine on the earth!" And so it was. 16 God fashioned two great lights {— } the larger light to illumine the day and the smaller light to illumine the night {— } as well as the stars. 17 God placed them in the expanse of the sky to shine on the earth, 18 to illumine both day and night, and to distinguish light from darkness. And God saw how good it was. 19 The twilight and the dawn were the fourth day. 20 Then God said, "Let the oceans swarm with myriads of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth throughout the sky!" 21 So God created every kind of magnificent sea creature, every kind of living sea crawler with which the waters swarmed, and every kind of flying bird. And God saw how good it was. 22 God blessed them by saying, "Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the oceans. Let the birds multiply throughout the earth!" 23 The twilight and the dawn were the fifth day. 24 Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth each kind of living creature, each kind of livestock and crawling thing, and each kind of wild animal!" And so it was. 25 God made each kind of wild animal, along with every kind of livestock and crawling thing. And God saw how good it was. 26 Then God said, "Let us make mankind in our image, to be like us. Let them be masters over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, the livestock, everything that crawls on the earth, and over the earth itself!" 27 So God created mankind in his own image; in his own image God created him; he created them male and female. 28 God blessed these humans by saying to them, "Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and be master over it! Rule over the fish in the ocean, the birds that fly, and every living thing that crawls on the earth!" 29 God also told them, "Look! I have given you every seed-bearing plant that grows throughout the earth, along with every tree that grows seed-bearing fruit. They shall produce your food. 30 I have given all green plants as food for every wild animal of the earth, every bird that flies, and to every living thing that crawls on the earth." And so it was. 31 Now God saw all that he had made, and, indeed, it was very good! The twilight and the dawn were the sixth day.
