THIS is My Son!

The Spirit of God and the divine voice from heaven confirmed the calling and identity of Jesus - Son of God and Messiah of Israel  –  Mark 1:9-11 .  In the gospel of  Mark , Jesus appears first at his baptism in the Jordan. The passage identifies him with his hometown,  Nazareth , a small village of no importance. But its very insignificance plays a part in the larger narrative -  Jesus is the Messiah who does not fit popular expectations  - even as he is anointed Messiah in fulfillment of Scripture - [ Photo by  Eugene Kuznetsov  on Unsplash ].
