Jesus Baptism And Jesus Ministry

Daily Bible Verses 281

Jesus Baptism -

Luke 3:21-22
King James Version (KJV)

21. Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,

22. And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

Something we may miss when reading about Jesus' baptism is that He was praying during His baptism. Only the Gospel of Luke provides this information. Was Jesus praying for the baptism of the Holy Spirit?

Jesus Ministry

The bible says that Jesus was also filled with the Holy Ghost or Spirit at His baptism. Jesus was anointed at His baptism for ministry. Nothing is recorded about Jesus doing ministry until after He is filled with the Holy Spirit. It was the Holy Spirit that gave power to Jesus' ministry.

Luke 4:14-21
King James Version (KJV)

14. And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee: and there went out a fame of him through all the region round about.

15. And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.

16. And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

17. And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,

18. The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

19. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

20. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

21. And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.

Jesus Baptism - Jesus Ministry
Peter confirms that Jesus' ministry began after His baptism and anointing-

Acts 10:36-38
King James Version (KJV)

36. The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)

37. That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;

38. How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

We also like Jesus and the disciples need to pray for the baptism of the Holy Spirit that we may have a successful and powerful ministry for God.
