Bible Quest – Jesus Baptism and Temptation

What happened when Jesus was baptised?

At the start of his ministry, Jesus went to John the Baptist to be baptised. Baptism is a sign that people are sorry for the wrong things they have done and to show that they want to live the way God wants them to. John the Baptist said that Jesus didn’t need to be baptised because He was perfect and hadn’t done anything wrong, but agreed to baptise Jesus anyway.

After Jesus had been baptised, the Holy Spirit filled Jesus and led Him into a deserted place. Here, Jesus was tempted by the devil, but was able to stand against the devil who was trying to lead Him into doing wrong.

Find out about Jesus baptism and temptation in the desert, in this Bible Quest video.
