Bible: Matt 3:13-17

The Baptism of Jesus

3:13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to John to be baptized by him in the Jordan River. 1  3:14 But John 2  tried to prevent 3  him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and yet you come to me? 3:15 So Jesus replied 4  to him, “Let it happen now, 5  for it is right for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John 6  yielded 7  to him. 3:16 After 8  Jesus was baptized, just as he was coming up out of the water, the 9  heavens 10  opened 11  and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove 12  and coming on him. 3:17 And 13  a voice from heaven said, 14 This is my one dear Son; 15  in him 16  I take great delight.” 17
