The Baptism of Our Lord 2012 – Matthew 3:13-17

When Jesus came to John to be baptized, John tried to prevent him. Jesus gives John a short answer “let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” What does Jesus mean? How is this unique Baptism a unique event in the whole of history? The old types and figures are assumed into Jesus. From Jesus new and saving waters spring forth. Water once destroyed, now saves.
