Pray, Read, Pray, Reflect…

Good morning, here are today’s reflection questions.

  1. Why is John baptizing (v.3)?
  2. Contrast this with the reason Jesus is baptized (cf. Mt 3:13-5).
    1. how does Jesus’ baptism show the extent he identifies with man?
  3. In what two ways is Jesus’ divine identity shown?
  4. What is said about His…
    1. identity…
    2. origin…
    3. character…
  5. When does Jesus start his public ministry?
  6. What preparation have you given to your “mission”?
    1. Or are you “impatient”? Why?
  7. Jesus’ genealogy of human descent
    1. His royal descent (cf. v. 32 with 1:32, 69)
    2. His religious ancestry (cf. 34 with 1:55)
  8. Why does Jesus as both divine and human have significance for you?
  9. What is your response to one with such an endorsement?

Reflect, Pray, and Give Praise

Here we will pause, tomorrow we will look at Tehillim (תהלים) (Psalms).
