Episode 66 – Named

Of all the reasons that scholars give to explain Jesus’ baptism, Amy wonders if maybe the reason Matthew includes this story in his gospel isn’t very simple. In Jesus’ baptism, God gives Jesus yet another name – My Son – an affirmation that this Jesus has a God-given purpose and is worthy of listening to, worthy of our worship and praise. And, she reminds us, God does this for us as well!

Matthew 3:13-17
