13. Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan to John, that he might be baptized by him. 14. But John forbade him, saying, I have need to be baptized by thee, and dost thou come to me? 15. And Jesus answering said to him, Suffer it now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffers him. 16. And Jesus, having been baptized, went up immediately from the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove, and coming upon him. 17. And, lo, a voice from heaven, saying, This is my be loved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
9. And it happened in those days, Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in Jordan. 10. And immediately, when he was going up out of the water, he saw the heavens cleft assunder, and the Spirit descending as a dove, upon him. 11. And a voice came from heaven, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
21. And it happened, that, while all the people were being baptized, when Jesus had been baptized and was praying, the heaven was opened, 22. And that the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily appearance, as a dove, upon him, and a voice came from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son: in thee I am well pleased. 23. And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age.
Let me ask some this question: "Why was Jesus Baptized"? Please do not just say~for thus it became him to fulfill all righteousness. It is much more extensive, than to leave it with those words, for one has not really explained the purpose of Jesus' baptism by only saying those words. Was Jesus' baptism for a different purpose than ours? Or, the same? Waiting for some answers.
