Mark 1:9-13

One day, Jesus arrived from distant Nazareth, a small town in Galilee, and received Baptism from John in the river. But just as He was stepping out of the water, He looked up, and saw the skies splitting apart, and from the midst of them, fluttering down upon Him as gently as a dove, came the Spirit of God; and out from heaven itself came a voice which said, "You are my Son and greatly loved. I am well satisfied with You."

Jesus felt this Spirit of God come upon Him, and It urged Him to go away alone into the desert. He stayed there for forty days, with only wild beasts for company. He was sorely tempted by the devil to shirk what God wanted Him to do, but the angels of God helped Him through.
