Bible: John 1:26-34

1:26 John answered them, 1 I baptize with water. Among you stands one whom you do not recognize, 2  1:27 who is coming after me. I am not worthy 3  to untie the strap 4  of his sandal! 1:28 These things happened in Bethany 5  across the Jordan River 6  where John was baptizing.

1:29 On the next day John 7  saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God 8  who takes away the sin of the world! 1:30 This is the one about whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who is greater than I am, 9  because he existed before me.’ 1:31 I did not recognize 10  him, but I came baptizing with water so that he could be revealed to Israel.” 11 

1:32 Then 12  John testified, 13 I saw the Spirit descending like a dove 14  from heaven, 15  and it remained on him. 16  1:33 And I did not recognize him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘The one on whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining – this is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’ 1:34 I have both seen and testified that this man is the Chosen One of God.” 17
