13 January 2018 - Sunday night, Rev. Aaron Eime took a closer look at the at the historical and religious context of baptism in first century Judaism. The baptism of Jesus is in the desert, where John the Baptist has been preparing the way of the Lord. John is calling for national repentance, and Jesus joins in. By doing so, Jesus identifies with Israel and with our humanity. In the middle of this, Jesus prays, the heavens open, and God speaks. How do we know it's God? Because God speaks his scriptures back to us. Aaron also looks at the Holy Spirit throughout the Hebrew scriptures. Readings: Isaiah 43:1-7; Acts 8:14-24; Luke 3:15-23
