John the Baptist: The baptism of Jesus

TEXT: MARK 1:9-11

John the Baptist is nearing the end of his ministry as Jesus comes to him and is also baptized by John.

Mark uses three verses to describe this scene (verses 9-11), two verses to describe Jesus' temptation in the wilderness (Mark 1:12-13) and one verse to show that John the Baptist was put into prison after Jesus was tested in the wilderness (Mark 1:14).

That is quite a brief summary of events.
