It is a well-known scene – Jesus being baptized in the Jordan River by John the Baptist. Why was it necessary for Jesus, who is God in the flesh, to be baptized? Why did the Spirit of God send Jesus into the wilderness for forty days to be tempted by Satan? Alistair Begg reminds us that Christ persistently identified with sinners, even enduring inconceivable temptations at the hand of Satan. Through it all Christ satisfied His Father and ultimately procured forgiveness for lost men and women.
