"When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too."
- Luke 3:21
 
Luke emphasizes Jesus' human nature. Jesus was born to humble parents, a birth unannounced except to shepherds and foreigners.

Jesus was baptized to give Baptism its power to save. He used it to equip Himself for the great work of salvation He would carry out.
