Sermon 07 January 2018  (Baptism of Jesus)

Jesus’ baptism was an epiphany by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  An epiphany is a revelation.  Jesus didn’t need John’s baptism of repentance, but submitted out of obedience to the Father’s plan.  The Holy Spirit confirmed Jesus’ identity to John the Baptist through a revelation.  Jesus demonstrated His love for us through His choices to obey.  We each need a fresh epiphany of His love … and our choices will reflect our love for Him.

Lectionary:  Isaiah 42:1-7; Psalm 29; Acts 10:34-38; Mark 1:4-11

Referenced Scriptures: Matthew 3:13-17; John 14:8-9; John 1:32-34
