The Baptism of Jesus(B)
13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.(C) 14 But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?”
15 Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented.
16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened,(D) and he saw the Spirit of God(E) descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven(F) said, “This is my Son,(G) whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”(H)
