Sermon Topic –  The Baptism of Jesus: Mark 1v9-20

Mark’s sermon last week delves into the significance of Jesus’ baptism and temptation as portrayed in Mark’s Gospel. He uses the analogy of an ideal dinner party guest list, where Jesus is a top choice, to underscore Jesus’ compelling character and lasting impact. He asserts that the core of Jesus’ identity is rooted in his heavenly affirmation during baptism— “You are my son whom I love. With you I am well pleased.” This affirmation comes even before Jesus’ ministry begins, emphasizing God’s unconditional love.
