Religion Project for Term 2
When Jesus became a young adult, he decided it was time for him to be baptized. So he went to the Jordan River.
When he arrived, he found John the Baptist preaching and baptizing his followers. As he baptized them, he would say:
"Someone mightier is coming. I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals."
John recognized Jesus, for they had spent some time together when they were young, and offered him the opportunity to be baptized next.
Once John baptized Jesus, something miraculous happened...
Suddenly, the skies opened and the Holy Spirit came down in the form of a dove. As this happened, the voice of God boomed throughout Israel saying:
"This is my son, with whom I am well pleased."
This was the beginning of Jesus' work in the public ministry. After that, Jesus left to fast for forty days in the desert, and, soon, go to Jerusalem.
