Luke 31Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, 2in the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John, the son of Zechariah, in the wilderness. 3He came into all the region around the Jordan, proclaiming the baptism of repentance for remission of sins. 4As it is written in the scroll of the words of Isaiah the prophet,
"The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
'Make ready the way of Jehovah.
Make his paths straight.
5Every valley will be filled.
Every mountain and hill will be brought low.
The crooked will become straight,
and the rough ways smooth.

Every tree therefore that does not bring forth good fruit is cut down, and thrown into the fire."
10The multitudes asked him, "What then must we do?"
11He answered them, "He who has two coats, let him give to him who has none. He who has food, let him do likewise."
12Tax collectors also came to be baptized, and they said to him, "Teacher, what must we do?"
13He said to them, "Collect no more than that which is appointed to you."
14Soldiers also asked him, saying, "What about us? What must we do?"
He said to them, "Extort from no one by violence, neither accuse anyone wrongfully. Be content with your wages."
15As the people were in expectation, and all men reasoned in their hearts concerning John, whether perhaps he was the Messiah, 16John answered them all, "I indeed baptize you with water, but he comes who is mightier than I, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to loosen. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire, 17whose fan is in his hand, to ▼

The sky was opened, 22and the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily form as a dove on him; and a voice came out of the sky, saying "You are my beloved Son. In you I am well pleased."
