R.E - A story from the Gospel of Matthew
One of the stories about Jesus that we hear after Christmas is the story of Jesus’ Baptism. Before Jesus started his ministry of teaching and healing he asked John the Baptist, his cousin, to baptise him.
Use a bible to Find Matthew’s account of that event. (3: 13-17) or read below -
At that time Jesus arrived from Galilee and came to John at the Jordan to be baptised by him. But John tried to make him change his mind. “I ought to be baptised by you,” John said, “and yet you have come to me!” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so for now. For in this way we shall do all that God requires.” So, John agreed. As soon as Jesus was baptised, he came up out of the water. Then heaven was opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God coming down like a dove and alighting on him. Then a voice said from heaven, “This is my own dear Son, with whom I am pleased.”
