So important to know the real Jesus just like Mark recorded clearly. There is a dire need in the world today just exactly who is Jesus. This will affect our way to live our lives. Unlike Hinduism, the incarnation is happening all the time and its just constant. Judaism and Islam who say that god is so transcendent, contrary to all, Christianity says that God is so loving to us that he broke though the concrete wall, and reincarnated in the person Jesus Christ, it’s the universe, world view shattering, universe changing fact.
1 The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God, a 2 as it is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way” b— 3 “a voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’ ” c 4 And so John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 5 The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River. 6 John wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey. 7 And this was his message: “After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. 8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”
