Bible Story information (Bible passages: Matthew 3:1-17) :
Jesus was baptized when he was about thirty years old. About eight years passed between the time he visited the Temple and the time of his baptism. He probably spent that time in Nazareth in the trade of carpentry. Jesus’ baptism marks the beginning of his public ministry.
John was preaching, baptizing, and calling people to change their ways. Jesus did not need a “repenter's” baptism, but his baptism identified him with those who were searching for God.
The Bible tells us that, when Jesus was baptized, the heavens opened and the Spirit of God came down on Jesus in the form of a dove. A voice spoke, “This is my own dear Son, with whom I am pleased.” These words are a composite of Psalm 2:7—a description of a messianic kind—and Isaiah 42:1—a description of a suffering servant of God. Jesus’ mission became that of the Messiah, God’s anointed One, who would endure much suffering.
