The respected author of the Gospel of Luke continues his documentation of the early life of the Master by documenting Christ’s family attending Jerusalem for the feast of Passover. We read about Christ speaking with the Torah scholars of His day at the Temple during one of many trips (at least three times a year) to Jerusalem. With context supplied by the First Century Jewish historian Josephus, we see the political context surround Christ’s baptism by John the Immerser. We also see at Christ’s baptism an anointing and affirmation confirmed by God, “This is My Son in whom I am well pleased.” When read in light of Psalm 2, Isaiah 40, 42 and 53, we see the fulfillment of the “Comforter” of Israel realized through the manifestation of Christ.
