The Baptism of Jesus

13 1Then Jesus arrived 2from Galilee at the Jordan coming to John, to be baptized by him. 14 But John tried to prevent Him, saying, "I have need to be baptized by You, and do You come to me?" 15 But Jesus answering said to him, "Permit it at this time; for in this way it is fitting for us 3to fulfill all righteousness." Then he permitted Him. 16 After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and a4he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and blighting on Him, 17 and behold, a voice out of the heavens said, "5This is cMy beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased."
