First Sunday After the Epiphany, Year C
Scripture: Luke 3:15-17, 21-22
“I have called you by name, you are mine.” (Isaiah 43:1) Jesus had probably heard these words before seeking baptism from John the Baptist. As Jesus comes up out of the water, we have a hint of the working of the Trinity – a true ministry of collaboration. Jesus prays, the Holy Spirit descends as a dove, and the Voice calls him by name.
