It was in His baptism that Jesus was revealed to the world as the one true Christ, the Anointed One above all others. The Son of God came to the world to be forever our prophet, priest, and king. It was not by the words of a mere mortal that Jesus was named as God’s chosen one, but rather by the voice of the Father Himself from heaven. It was not by an earthly oil that Jesus was anointed and consecrated to serve, but rather by the Spirit of God Himself, coming down from heaven upon His head in the form of a dove. In ages past, many men had been anointed to lead, but only the Son of God was the true Christόs. He was, and is, the great and eternal prophet and priest and king, for all the people of the world.
