CSI: Identity Confirmed
The first clue in our sermon series, CSI: Christ Scene Investigation, is not terribly hard to find. We hear John the Baptist, waist deep in the Jordan River, calling out to watch for the one who is coming that is greater than he. After Jesus was baptized by John in the Jordan, the sky opens and a voice from heaven announces that this is God’s Son, the Beloved!
We open our investigation this week into who Jesus is, as portrayed n the early chapters of the Gospels. The Baptism of Jesus begins the church season of Epiphany – a word often used when we come to realize something – and throughout the six weeks to come, we’ll investigate what can be understood about our Lord, and what that means for our call to follow him!
Additional scripture - Genesis 1: 1-5; Psalm 29; Acts 19:1-7
