    Fr. Mike elaborates on the significance of the Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River. He points out that the location of the Jordan River is particualry noteworthy because it's the same river that Joshua crossed over to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land, signifying that Jesus will bring about a new exodus. Additionally, it's the lowest spot on the planet, symbolizing Jesus' humility. Finally, Fr. Mike emphasizes that when we are baptized we are adopted as beloved sons and daughters of God because what belongs to Jesus by his nature, is given to us by God’s grace. Today we read Luke 3-5 and Proverbs 25:27-28.
