B. Anointed

13 Then Jesus came from aGalilee to the Jordan to John to be 1bbaptized by him.

14 But John tried to prevent Him, saying, It is I who have need of being baptized by You, and You come to me?

15 But Jesus answered and said to him, Permit it for now, for it is fitting for us in this way to afulfill all 1righteousness. Then he permitted Him.

16 And 1having been baptized, Jesus went up immediately from the water, and behold, the 2heavens were aopened to Him, and He saw the 3Spirit of God descending like a 4bdove and coming cupon Him.

17 And behold, a avoice out of the heavens, saying, 1This is My bSon, the Beloved, in whom I have found My cdelight.
