May 29 – Matt. 3:16; “And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him”.
The exact year of Jesus’ baptism isn’t known, although it can be safely assumed that it was circa 30 AD. The reason for the significance of the date is for you to show the Mormon something new to think about as they look at the Book of Mormon. This part of the story took place between 559-545 BC! How could Jesus be baptized 559 years before He was born?
2 Nephi 31:6; “And now, I would ask of you, my beloved brethren, wherein the Lamb of God did fulfil all righteousness in being baptized by water?”
