More Than Just a Man, part 1: The One

John had one purpose, to prepare the way for God’s Messiah. John baptized many people, but in only one case did the heavens split open, the Holy Spirit visibly descend like a dove, and God’s voice audibly speak that, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” The very presence of God on Earth is seen in the baptism of Jesus, and through our baptism into His life, death and resurrection, we are part of the Body of Christ, the Church, God’s dwelling place on Earth.

From Series: " Epiphany: More Than Just a Man "

This 6-week series follows the Epiphany lectionary schedule. Epiphany is the season where we witness the revelation that Jesus is God. Epiphany refers to the moment some truth is realized. It’s not quite an “aha!” moment (as if one just solved a problem or discovered the answer), more of a, “w..o..w” exclamation (as one witnesses something that is more than they expected). He is, Emmanuel, God with us. What epiphanies are there for us today? What can wow us? This season begins by celebrating the baptism of Jesus, and finishes with the Transfiguration.
