Bear Grylls: It Was Always ‘A Dream of Mine To Get in the Water That Jesus Was Baptised In’

Luke 3:21-22 describes Jesus’ baptism as follows:

When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”

Alpha pioneer Nicky Gumbel responded to Grylls’ baptism post on Instagram with a series of emojis celebrating the news, and Nicky’s wife, Pippa, commented, “Hooray.”
