Anointing the Messiah King

Passage: Matthew 3:13-17
Service Type:


Matthew 3:13

Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. [14] John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” [15] But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. [16] And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; [17] and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”

The baptism of Jesus publicly identifies him as the Messiah King who will secure the redemption of His people.
·   Jesus humbly identifies with us through His baptism (13-15a)    
·   Jesus’ baptism consecrates His mission as the Savior (15)    
·   Jesus’ baptism divinely declares His qualification to be the Messiah (16-17)
