The Gospel of Matthew: Jesus Baptism and Testing

Matthew 3v13 - 4v11

Matt Deisen | December 11, 2016 | Duration: 38 minutes


As Jesus is baptized by John in the Jordan, God speaks words of identity, love, and affirmation over his ilfe as he is annointed with the Holy Spirit. But then the Spirit leads him into the wilderness to be tested by the enemy. What is this testing all about and why did Jesus pass on this story?
