13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. 14 John tried to dissuade Jesus, saying, “I should be baptized by you, and yet you come to me!” 15 But Jesus replied, “Leave it this way for now. We must do this to completely fulfill God’s justice.” So John reluctantly agreed.
16 Immediately after Jesus had been baptized and was coming up out of the water, the sky suddenly opened up and Jesus saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and hovering over him. 17 With that, a voice from the heavens said, “This is my Own, my Beloved, on whom my favour rests.”
