Sermon on Luke 3:21-23 - The Baptism of Jesus

In Luke's account of the baptism of Jesus the emphasis is on four events connected with His baptism: (1). The praying of Jesus during His baptism; (2). The opening of the heavens; (3). The descent of the Holy Spirit on Jesus; and (4). The voice of God from heaven. At Jesus' baptism "the opened heavens, the descending Spirit and the voice of the Father alike bore testimony to the perfection of the Son." - G.C. Morgan, THE CRISES OF THE CHRIST, pg. 86.
