Christ Begins His Ministry

当下,耶稣从加利利来到约旦河,见了约翰,要受他的洗。 (马太福音 3:13 和合本)
Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. (Matthew 3:13 NIV)
约翰想要拦住他,说:“我当受你的洗,你反倒上我这里来吗?” (马太福音 3:14 和合本)
But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” (Matthew 3:14 NIV)
耶稣回答说:“你暂且许我,因为我们理当这样尽诸般的义(或译:礼) 。”于是约翰许了他。 (马太福音 3:15 和合本)
Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.”Then John consented. (Matthew 3:15 NIV)
耶稣受了洗,随即从水里上来。天忽然为他开了,他就看见 神的灵仿佛鸽子降下,落在他身上。 (马太福音 3:16 和合本)
As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. (Matthew 3:16 NIV)
从天上有声音说:“这是我的爱子,我所喜悦的。” (马太福音 3:17 和合本)
And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:17 NIV)
