Powerful Moments

Mathew 4:12-22

Presumably, after Jesus was baptized, he stayed in Judea and ministered there. We know little of Jesus' first year of ministry and Matthew says nothing of it. Only after the arrest of John does Jesus come to Galilee. For Matthew, the importance of this move lies in its fulfillment of prophecy and it is at this point that he decides to begin his account of Jesus' ministry.

Baptism of Christ

Mathew 3:13-17

 

Crowds had flocked to John the Baptist as he baptized beside the river Jordan and now Matthew recounts how Jesus joined the crowds and was himself baptized by John. This is an interesting story in that it pictures Jesus involved in an activity that seems quite unnecessary. Why would Jesus bother to be baptized?
