Mark 1:4; Mark 10:38-39; Mark 11:30
John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
But Jesus said to them, "You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?"
They said to Him, "We are able." And Jesus said to them, "The cup that I drink you shall drink; and you shall be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized.
"Was the baptism of John from heaven, or from men? Answer Me."
