Out of Egypt I called my Son (Matthew 3:13-23)Rosemary Aldis, 28th October 2018

Matthew emphasises the fulfillment of prophecy. God preserved Jesus from Herod and will preserve his Church. Jesus was a refugee but very precious to God the Father.

Matthew 3:13–17 (Listen)
13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. 14 John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” 15 But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. 16 And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; 17 and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”
