12. a. ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ John 1:33b (NIV84)
b. John saw a vision of the Spirit coming down like a dove and remaining on someone. He did not know who it was.
c. “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.” Luke 3:22b (NIV84)
13. a. Confess their sins
b. Jesus did not confess any sins because He had none.
c. (Challenge) Jesus’ baptism and the subsequent opening of the heavens with the Holy Spirit descending like a dove, fulfilled the prophecy given to John. Additionally, God spoke in the hearing of all those present that day. At this moment, Jesus’ coronation as King of the Jews took place and/or perhaps He was anointed as our High Priest. Only God could do that.
