Comparing Accounts of Jesus' Baptism


Assign the following comparison of the accounts of Jesus' Baptism from the four Gospels. Have the students note similarities and differences. For example, John's Gospel never clearly mentions that it was John the Baptism who baptized Jesus.


Mt 3:13-17

Mk 1:9-11

Lk 3:21-22

Jn 1:29-34

Who sees the sky opened?





Who sees the dove descending?





Who hears the voice of the Father?
