One day Yoshua comes from Nazareth in Galilaia. He is abluted in the Yordan by Yohanan. Then, rising from the water, he sees the skies splitting and the aether like a dove ettling on him. And comes a voice from the sky —You are my beloved son. In you I am well pleased.
Then the aether sweeps him out into the desert. He is in the desert forty days, being tested by the accuser. He is with the beasts, and messengers serve him.
