January 11th, 2015 – BAPTISM OF THE LORD


    The content of the apostles’ early preaching began with Jesus’ baptism by John in the Jordan River. Here, many years after the wise men’s journey to Bethlehem, a new epiphany is manifested from the heavens and Jesus begins to be revealed to the people as God’s anointed Servant or Messiah (Second Reading and Gospel), prophesied by Isaiah (First Reading), although as more than a servant but God’s Beloved Son.
