1.2. The Baptism of Jesus

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven,
 
“You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”
 
Psalm 2: 7 (around 1000 BC) I will tell of the decree:  The Lord said to me, "You are my Son;  today I have begotten you..."
 
Genesis 22: 1-2 (written around 1300 BC)  After these things God tested Abraham and said to him, "Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am." 2 He said, "Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you."
 
Isaiah 42: 1 (circa 710 BC)  Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations.
