    The Baptism of Jesus


    Jesus seeks out John the Baptist and is baptized in order to fulfill all righteousness.

    Matthew 3: 13-17

    13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
    14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
    15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness . Then he suffered him.
    16 And Jesus, when he was baptized , went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove , and lighting upon him:
    17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son , in whom I am well pleased.
