At that time Jesus came from Nazareth2 in Galilee and was baptized by John3 in the Jordan.
As Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.411
And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son,5 whom I love; with you I am well pleased."612
At once the Spirit sent him out into the desert,
and he was in the desert forty days,7 being tempted by Satan.8 He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.
After John9 was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee,10 proclaiming the good news of God.1115"The time has come,"12 he said. "The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe13 the good news!"1416
As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen.
17"Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men."18
At once they left their nets and followed him.15
