INTRODUCTION. John was sent by God to bear witness of the Light that all might believe through him (John 1:6-7). As John prepared Israel for the coming of the Son of God, he called the people to repentance, preaching the message of baptism for remission of sins (Mark 1:4; Luke 3:3).


Jesus came to John to be baptized to fulfill all righteousness (Matt. 3:15). Righteousness is the quality of being right or just; it is the sum total of the requirements of God–"...seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness..." (Matt. 6:33). When Jesus was baptized, the Holy Spirit descended upon him in the form of a dove, and the voice of the Father in heaven acknowledged him as his Son. Jesus' Divine nature was revealed in this event.
