  Mark 16:

Jesus rose from the dead and a man in white robe told Mary Magdalene, Mary mother of James, and Salome at his tomb that Jesus the Nazarene had risen. He also said that they should go tell the disciples that Jesus will meet them in Galilee as he had told them before. Jesus first appeared to Mary Magdalene, from who Jesus drove out seven demons, but no one believed her. Jesus appeared to more people including the disciples and was upset at the disciples' lack of faith in believing the reports that he had risen. Jesus then sent them to the world to preach the good news and baptizing those who believed as God's chosen ones. Those who believe will drive out demons, speak in new tongues, will not be harmed by snakes or poison, and heal people. Jesus then ascended into heaven and sat on the right side of God. The disciples went on to preach and baptize as commanded with the gifts of those that believed.

Luke 1:

Luke wrote to Theophilus about things that were witnessed and have been fulfilled. During the reign of King Herod in Judea, there was a priest named Zechariah and both him and his wife, Elizabeth, were descendants of Aaron (Moses' brother). They both observed God's laws blamelessly, but had no children because she was barren and they were advanced in age. Zechariah was burning incense as priest in the temple when an angel appeared to him by the altar and told him that his prayers for a child have been answered. His wife was to birth a son who will be called John, be joy to the people, and will be great to God. John was to avoid alcohol and was filled with the Holy Spirit from birth. He will also prepare the way for the Lord and bring the people back to the wisdom of God in the spirit and power of Elijah. The angel made Zachariah become dumb because he did not believe Angel Gabriel, who spoke these words to him in God's presence. Gabriel went to Mary in Nazareth in Galilee, who was engaged to a descendant of David, Joseph, and told her that God had favored her to birth Jesus, Son of the Most High God. He also told Mary that she will be filled with the Holy Spirit, she will give birth despite being a virgin, and her cousin Elizabeth was in her 6th month despite her age. John the Baptist is born.

Luke 2:

Caesar Augustus ordered a census throughout the Roman empire, so everyone went to their hometown to be counted. Joseph left Nazareth in Galilee in Israel to Bethlehem, city of David in Judah, with pregnant Mary to register. Jesus, her firstborn was born and wrapped in a manger. An angel appeared to a group of shepherds tending their flock at night and informed them that the Christ has been born in Bethlehem. They went to see for themselves and spread to word about his birth. After circumcision, Jesus was taken to Jerusalem, as the firstborn male child, to be dedicated to God in the temple. In the temple, Simeon, a devout man prophesized that Jesus was the Christ and would be a sign that many would speak against. Prophetess Anna, who was a widow for 84 years and lived in the temple ever since, also spoke about Jesus, Joseph then took his family back to Nazareth in Galilee. Each year Jesus went to Jerusalem for Passover and when he was 12 years old, he stayed in the temple in Jerusalem with the teachers of the law to ask questions instead of returning with his parents to Nazareth. All were amazed at his understanding of God's words. His parents found him 3 days later and he told them that he was supposed to be in his Father's house.
