The Son of God and sharer in humanity.
During the days after Epiphany we are show other visions of Jesus. We launch forward to Jesus’ baptism in the river Jordan by John the Baptist.
In a repeat of yesterday’s theme, Jesus was baptised, drenched in the Jordan as an act of repentance and forgiveness. As we were at our Baptism.
This was not just for Jesus’ followers to respond to in a similar manner, but for us to recognise that Jesus shared and shares still the grace and love of his and our Father.
