Jesus’ Baptism

July 23, 2008 Leave a comment

How fascinating, in verse 9, that John baptizes Jesus.

Why?  Jesus had no need to repent or be reborn.

Was the purpose of Jesus’ baptism different than that of yours or mine, dear Reader?

It is my understanding that, after Jesus’ death and resurrection, Christians take on the holiness of Jesus in the Father’s eyes.  Therefore, when God says, “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased” in verse 11, this compliment can be applied to believers everywhere.

That is incredibly encouraging.
