The Baptism of the Lord (A)
Gospel text
Mt 3:13-17
Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. John tried to prevent him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and yet you are coming to me?”
Gospel's Commentary
Today we are surprised: Jesus Christ, already older (about 30 years), went to the Jordan River to receive the baptism that John was imparting. The Baptist was stunned... and so are we! -The baptism is very important! So important that a voice from Heaven said: “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” God also said it when you received the sacrament of Baptism.
