Certain ceremonies mark significant transitions and passages launching us into the next part of our lives. For Jesus, His Baptism signified such a change because now his public ministry was beginning. His Father and the Holy Spirit attended the event that launched Him into a trajectory whose aim was the cross. The Baptism of Jesus anticipates the cross which will be the means through which God and humanity are reunited and reconciled. We explore this event that was not only in the life of Jesus but finds it way into our own lives as well.
