One Response to “The Messiah is Immersed with Israel”

    John was baptizing for repentance to God, but just imagine God in the flesh coming to you and asking to be baptized. And yet this was Jesus going through the cleansing ritual and literally placing himself before God, which is what I think baptism does for us as well. It places us within God’s context in faith and obedience. Once there God can forgive us of our sins. We have returned.
