But John tried to deter him, saying, "I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?"
At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened
and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."
I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel."
