The Baptism of Jesus

Matthew 3:1-17

1 In those days came John the Bap­tist, preach­ing in the wilder­ness of Ju­daea,
2 And say­ing, Re­pent ye: for the king­dom of heav­en is at hand.
3 For this is he that was spo­ken of by the prophet Esa­ias, say­ing, The voice of one cry­ing in the wilder­ness, Pre­pare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
4 And the same John had his rai­ment of camel’s hair, and a leath­ern gir­dle about his loins; and his meat was lo­custs and wild honey.
5 Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Ju­daea, and all the re­gion round about Jor­dan,
6 And were bap­tized of him in Jor­dan, con­fess­ing their sins.

 

7 But when he saw many of the Phar­isees and Sad­ducees come to his bap­tism, he said unto them, O gen­er­a­tion of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
8 Bring forth there­fore fruits meet for re­pen­tance:
9 And think not to say with­in your­selves, We have Abra­ham to our fa­ther: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up chil­dren unto Abra­ham.
10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: there­fore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
11 I in­deed bap­tize you with water unto re­pen­tance: but he that cometh after me is might­i­er than I, whose shoes I am not wor­thy to bear: he shall bap­tize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:
12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will through­ly purge his floor, and gath­er his wheat into the gar­ner; but he will burn up the chaff with un­quench­able fire.

 

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.
