|On the next day, John saw Jesus coming toward him, and so he said: “Behold, the Lamb of God. Behold, he who takes away the sin of the world.
|This is the one about whom I said, ‘After me arrives a man, who has been placed ahead of me, because he existed before me.’
|And I did not know him. Yet it is for this reason that I come baptizing with water: so that he may be made manifest in Israel.”
|And John offered testimony, saying: “For I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove; and he remained upon him.
|And I did not know him. But he who sent me to baptize with water said to me: ‘He over whom you will see the Spirit descending and remaining upon him, this is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’
|And I saw, and I gave testimony: that this one is the Son of God.”
