Then Jesus appeared. He came from Galilee to the Jordan River to be baptized by John.
But John tried to stop him and said, "I need to be baptized by you. Why are you coming to me?"
Jesus answered him, "This is the way it has to be now. This is the proper way to do everything that God requires of us." Then John gave in to him.
After Jesus was baptized, he immediately came up from the water. Suddenly, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God coming down as a dove to him.
Then a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love--my Son with whom I am pleased."
