The Story Begins - Jesus Son of God
Our writer, Luke, as this story begins pronouncedly turns now from highlighting the ministry of John to introducing the initial ministry of the main character of his account, Jesus. Luke’s primary concern in today’s passage is to reveal Jesus to his readers as the one who John had pronounced, unmistakable unique. So, we will compare Luke’s own purpose of relating Jesus’ baptism narrative to the purposes of the other gospel writers. And, hopefully, we will all agree together that there is no one like Jesus.
