Then Jesus appeared: He came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptised by John. John tried to dissuade him. “It is I who need baptism from you”, he said. “and yet you come to me!” But Jesus replied, “Leave it like this for the time being; it is fitting that we should, in this way, do all that righteousness demands”. At this, John gave in to him. As soon as Jesus was baptized, He came up from the water, and suddenly the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming down on him. And a voice spoke from heaven, “This is my Son, the Beloved; my favour rests on him”.
