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
