HIS PREPARATION FOR MINISTRY

Jan 21 3.2 Then Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee asking to be baptized. John protested, saying, “I need to be baptized by you instead. Why come to me?”

Jesus said, “Let it be so for now to fulfill all righteousness.”

After baptism, when Jesus was coming out of the water, praying,1 the heavens opened and John saw2 Gods Spirit descend bodily like a dove upon Jesus, and a voice from heaven3 said, “This is My Son, My Beloved, in whom I am well pleased.” Jesus started teaching at about thirty years of age.4
