Previously we recorded the visit that Yeshua made to the Holy City of David to observe the Passover (see Ba – The Boy Jesus at the Temple). Now approximately eighteen years later He made a similar journey in order to be baptized by John the Immerser. The specific purpose of the visit was stated: Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John (Mattityahu 3:13).
Yochanan had prepared the Jewish people for the momentous event. God the Father would approve of God the Son, and the Holy Spirit would equip the Kosher King so that He could begin His messianic ministry. Next we see the Anointed One officially presented by the designated forerunner to the nation of Isra’el as her Redeemer and Savior.
