The Baptism of the Lord     

Fr. Duncan writes: Today we celebrate the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. Jesus was baptised in the Jordan by John. We see the revelation to John of the identity of Jesus through the descent of the Holy Spirit and the voice of God the Father from heaven. John the Baptist then steps aside in order that God might work directly among his people in the person of his Son, Jesus Christ. When Jesus is baptised in the Jordan, he receives the power of the Spirit to begin his ministry. The Feast of the Baptism of the Lord marks the beginning of the public mission of Jesus. It will be a mission of service to others and hence the fulfilment of his Father’s will.
