Mark 1:9-11
Matthew 3:13-17
Luke 3:21-23a

And it happened in those days
that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee
and was baptized in the Jordan by John.
And immediately coming up out of the water
he saw the heavens splitting
and the Spirit as a dove coming down to him;
and there was a voice out of the heavens:
"You are my beloved son; with you I am well pleased."
Mark 1:9-11

Then Jesus arrives from Galilee at the Jordan
before John to be baptized by him.
But he prevented him, saying, "I need to be baptized by you,
and do you come to me?"

Jesus answering said to him, "Let it be so now;
for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all correctness."
Then he let him.

And baptized, Jesus immediately came up from the water;
and look, the heavens were opened,
and he saw the Spirit of God coming down like a dove,
coming upon him; and look, a voice out of the heavens,
saying, "This is my beloved son, with whom I am well pleased."
Matthew 3:13-17

It happened when all the people were being baptized
and Jesus had been baptized and was praying,
that heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit came down
in bodily form as a dove upon him,
and a voice came out of heaven:
"You are my beloved son; with you I am well pleased."
And Jesus himself beginning was about thirty years old.
Luke 3:21-23a
