"And when Jesus was baptized, he went up immediately from the water, and
behold, the heavens were opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a
dove, and alighting on him; and lo, a voice from heaven, saying, 'This is my
beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased"' (Mt 3:16-17).
"Jesus' public life begins with his baptism by John in the Jordan. John
preaches 'a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins' (Lk 3:3)"
