John the Baptist was near the River Jordan at Bethany. After baptising Jesus he began telling people how he had seen the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove descending from heaven and resting upon Jesus. ‘I saw it happen to Jesus,’ John said, ‘And I testify that He is the Son of God.’ – Slide 1
The following day, as John was standing with two of his disciples, Jesus walked by. John looked at Him intently and then declared, ‘See! There is the Lamb of God!’ – Slide 2
The two disciples with John immediately followed after Jesus.Jesus turned and saw them following. ‘What do you want?’ He asked them.‘Sir,’ they replied, ‘where are you staying?’‘Come and see,’ Jesus said. – Slide 3
