The Baptism of Jesus

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