And when He came up out of the water, at once he [John] saw the heavens torn open and the [Holy] Spirit like a dove coming down [to enter] into Him.
And there came a voice out from within heaven, You are My Beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.

Romans 6:3-4 (Amplified Bible)
Are you ignorant of the fact that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?
