The Baptism of Our Lord
John objects to baptizing Jesus at first, because, first, he knew he needed to be baptized. Yet according to Jesus, no one ever born was greater than he; yet he declared himself unworthy. Surely then so are we. Second, why would Jesus identify here with sinners? He does more than that, for this fulfills all righteousness. Here he, the Lamb of God, is laden with the sins of the world, that he may take them to the place of sacrifice in his crucifixion. And in addition, anyone baptized in his name gets more, for not only are his sins removed, but he receives the righteousness of Christ. Sermon for the Baptism of Our Lord. The video is here.
