The Baptism of the King (Matt 3:13-17)

The full Trinity is on display in this text as all three persons of the Godhead manifest themselves in this important chapter of redemptive history. When the Son entered into those waters, he began his coronation service by identifying with the sinful people he came to save. When the Holy Spirit descended upon Jesus, he empowered him to be a sinful people’s king. When God the Father spoke, he gave his benediction upon his Son, approving and authorizing him to do this saving work.
