Jesus came to redeem His people and establish His kingdom. He initiated His public ministry with baptism and demonstrated that He would eventually die (immersion symbolizing burial) and be raised again (coming out of the water). In Matthew 3 we find the story of Jesus coming to John the Baptist and requesting to be baptized. This is a wonderful picture of Jesus identifying himself with all sinful humans and giving us an example of how our Christian lives should be characterized by sacrificial love and humility. This free printable coloring page will help children remember this important event in Jesus’ life.
