Nope. In the autumn of 29 C.E., Jesus came to John to be baptized. John at first objected, knowing his own sinfulness and the righteousness of Jesus. But Jesus insisted. God had promised John a sign so that he could identify the Son of God. (Mt 3:13; Mr 1:9; Lu 3:21; Joh 1:33) When Jesus was baptized, the sign was fulfilled: John saw God’s spirit coming down upon Jesus and heard God’s own voice declaring Jesus to be His Son. Evidently no others were present at Jesus’ baptism.—Mt 3:16, 17; Mr 1:9-11; Joh 1:32-34; 5:31, 37.
Jesus was Baptized, but He was the only one upon which a Dove descended. And when Jesus was Baptized, God the Father spoke in an audible voice. Matthew chapter three ( NIV ) 16As 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 lighting on him. 17And a voice from heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased." Also see Mark 1:8 and Luke 3:22 and John 1:29-34 If the Pope read the Bible, he would know that Jesus was not just one of the crowd. Pastor Art
The Pope is trying to convey a meaning that is different from the "truth". But, let's say that is how it was.... the key here is that John the Baptist knew whom He was and singled Him out, then, God spoke from the Heavens about Jesus.... Look at the whole picture....the Pope wasn't there and neither were you and I in person. We get info from the Bible and from the Holy Spirit... God was no respector of persons and still isn't... you and I and the Pope have the same chances of knowing Truth...none of us are better than the other, Truth.
A humble man waits to be seated, the parable of the feast. When asked to dinner sit a the lowest seat so if the host asked you to move up closer, to God. You can imagine this God/man dressed in sandals and robe, humble just standing quietly looking on, with peace and love, maybe helping an old cripple into the water, speaking quietly to those who ask a question.
That is correct. Jesus was of and for the common people and had great humility. Regard his teachings about the rich "It is easier for A camel to pass through the eye of A needle than for a rich man to enter the Kingdom of Heaven." Regard also his actions against capitalism (money changers being the quintessential capitalists), he scourged them out of the House of God with whips.
I don't think the scriptures mention if there were others. It wouldn't be surprising since many listened to John's preaching. That is why he was killed by Herod.
No,the Bible tell,s of Jesus baptisem
Yes, Jesus was baptized.
Funny...I thought the Bible said that...guess I better go read the pope instead...
