Visiting the Jordan River: A place of beauty.

“Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter Him, saying, ‘I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?’ Jesus replied , ‘Let it be so now; for it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.’ Then John consented.

As soon as Jesus was baptized, He went out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descended like a dove and alighting on Him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:13-16)
