This is the Discovery GAME, where we discover spiritual truths through storytelling.
Baptism of Jesus
- John the Baptist said, “I baptize you with water for repentance.
- But after me comes one who is more powerful than I,
- Whose sandals I am not worthy to carry.
- He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
- He is ready to go into his field and gather the grain
- And burn the chaff with unquenchable fire."
- Later, Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John.
- But John hesitated, “I need to be baptized by you, and you come to me?
- They talked it over and John agreed to baptize Jesus.
- And as Jesus came up out of the water, Heaven was opened,
- Jesus saw the Spirit of God descending upon him like a dove.
- A voice said from heaven, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
- Jesus came again the next day and John said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
- He is the reason I came baptizing with water, so that he might be revealed to Israel.
- The one who sent me to baptize with water told me,
- ‘The man that you see the Spirit come down and remain on will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’
- I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”
