Matthew 3:13-17 NLT

13 Then Jesus went from Galilee to the Jordan River to be baptized by John.
14 But John tried to talk him out of it. “I am the one who needs to be baptized by you,” he said, “so why are you coming to me?”
15 But Jesus said, “It should be done, for we must carry out all that God requires.3:15 Or for we must fulfill all righteousness.” So John agreed to baptize him.
