And it came to pass in those days,
that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee,
and was baptized of John in Jordan.
Jesus came from Nazareth, where He was raised, and had lived till then (See Luke 2:51, 4:16).
If you compare the Gospel of Mark with the other Gospels, Mark has skipped a lot. No family tree of Jesus, no birth history; even the discussion between Jesus and John about being baptized is not found in Mark.
It is briefly noted: Jesus was baptized by John in the Jordan.
He also, as a person among people. And at the same time completely unique, when heaven opens, the Spirit descends like a dove on Jesus (Mark 1:10), and God’s voice sounds: My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased (Mark 1:11).
This is how God reveals Himself: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Is a richer revelation conceivable?
If Jesus is proclaimed like this as the Son of God, shouldn’t we continue to listen to His good message?
