Baptism of Jesus Christ - Luke
3:21-38 ( res-1c, 1i,
2a, 2c 3 & 7 ).
a) John Was Baptizing the people;
John the Baptist was Baptizing the people in water (Full Submersion)
for repentance of sins (Mt 3:11). It is symbolic of the washing away of (getting rid
of) sins, a purity!
b) Jesus Christ Was Baptized at age of
30; Even though Jesus
Christ has NEVER committed a sin, in order
righteousness to be fulfill and for Jesus Christ to be obedient to God he had to
immersed, See ) in water (Mt 3:15). So in
that God spoke well of his son that he is pleased
with him. For Jesus love, obedience and being humble in all he did!
In Old Testament circumcision represented a washing
away of sin, purity just as water
represents a washing away of sin, purity. (See Easton's Bible Dictionary "Circumcision").
In the Old
Testament circumcision was a sign, a covenant, a seal of God that the
person belonged to
God forever. Dt 10:16, 30:6, Jos 5:2, Jer 4:4.
c) Jesus Christ
Started His Ministry; He
did not begin to teach until he was of manhood age of 30 years old.
This is the age of Maturity, of Stature, of Mental and Physical abilities to
their peak performances! No
one should ever try to teach the Bible to anyone until they reach manhood age!
Unless they actually think
they are better than our Lord, our Savior and our Teacher Jesus Christ!
21B) Jesus Genealogy, Mary's Family Side -
a) Luke uses Mary's Family Tree for Jesus
Christ Genealogy; 1) Luke
uses Mary's Genealogy Line from
son Nathan" to trace Jesus Christ
genealogy line. 2) The
reason why Luke uses Mary's Line is
because Jesus seed physically came from Mary instead
of Joseph (Matthew 1:18-20)
3) Usually a
genealogy line, a human seed comes from the man rather than the woman and it has
been that way since
the beginning of mankind, BUT in this case some how Mary's
Pregnancy is from the Holy Spirit.
Importance of Jesus Christ
like a Berean, Search Scriptures
As always it is extremely
important to prove where and how
Jesus Christ came to be,
since many times he was not only
claiming royalty but even more
so claiming he is son of God,
the flesh (Mt
16:15-20, Mk 15:61-62, Lk 22:70,
24:44-53, Jn 6:35, 6:41, 6:51,
8:12-32, etc)! So
since Jesus was claiming such
things, it is extremely
important not just to the Jews
but the rest of the world,
as well to make sure that Jesus
Christ is who he says he is!
We like all people should check
out the evidence for our selves
sure that Jesus Christ is
says he is, so that there will
never be any doubt as to who
Jesus is, even in the back of
our minds! So
with our belief in him, we can
be sure that we do have complete
Faith without ever doubting our
Out of my over 30 years as a
Born Again Christ, I have seen
tons of evidence through
etc that Jesus Christ and the
Bible are highly true.
And there is much more evidence,
if we pay close attention to his
teachings we will see that he is
extremely wise and truthful all
of the time! Friends we should
never blindly follow anyone with
that they are from God, of God
and with Gods authority!
Jesus Christ miracles as well
proves that he is the
Christ, the son of God, God in
the flesh as well. Plus
there are were well over 500
witness that seen Jesus
Christ after he rose from the
15:1-8). And through out
the years there has been old
writings that even wrote about
of Jesus Christ Genealogy; To Prove; 1) Jesus
Christ is the son of God, the Promised Messiah.
Nations Blessed via Jesus Christ; Genesis
22:18, 26:4, 35:11 ) , 2) That
he is the son of Abraham &
of David (Mt 1:1,
Lk 3:34) 3) His
Inheritance to David's Throne (Lk 1:32) 4) That
Jesus Christ shall come
from Abraham that is a father of "ALL NATIONS" (Genesis
12:3, 17:1-6, 22:18). 5) and as well
shall come from King David (2
Samuel 7:12, Psalms 89:3, 132:11). So when it
all is said and done regarding
Jesus Christ blood line and so one, proves that t
Jesus Christ line is not just a King, but a Kings of Kings

This is due that instead Jesus

Temptation of Jesus - Luke
4:1-13 - (Matthew
1:12,13) - To
4:1-2 - The
Holy Spirit led Jesus to the Wilderness -
It was the Holy Spirit that led Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted by the
devil and after Jesus has fasted for 40 days and 40
nights, to where he was at his physical and mental at his weakest points. I
believe another purpose that Jesus fasted for 40 days/nights was to bring his
mind and body into total submission, so that the so he could be in control of
his weak flesh instead of it being in control over him.
b) Luke 4:3-4 - Satan
tempted Jesus to doubt who he is - Now
since Jesus was very hungry after fasting for 40 days and 40
nights, Satan used Jesus physical and mental
(fleshly) weakness to tempt Jesus by trying to get Jesus Christ to doubt
who he is, if he really is the Son of God. To
fight that temptation Jesus Christ our Lord used the Holy Words of God (Deuteronomy
8:3) instead of his own personal opinions or
ideas. By telling Satan that he lives by every word out of the mouth of God.
The Holy Words of God carries tons of power against evil. - See Deuteronomy
4:5-8 - Satan
tempts Jesus with Kingdoms, Riches & Power -
In this Satan take Jesus Christ to a extremely high mountain and
tempts our Lord Jesus Christ with kingdoms of the
world, the powers and riches of it, that Satan would give Jesus all of that if
Jesus Christ would worship him instead of worshipping God. And again Jesus
using Gods Holy words to resist temptation, the evils of Satan, by saying we
shall worship God only, Deuteronomy 6:13,
See 14 too.
See Deuteronomy 6:13 & 14.
4:9-12 - Satan
tried to get Jesus to tempt God, His Power -
In this next temptation, Satan takes Jesus out of the wilderness to
Jerusalem up to the highest point of the biggest
church there, and then Satan tries to trick Jesus Christ by twisting
the meaning of the scripture in Psalms
91:11-12 into committing suicide, by using
Jesus weak (flesh) his physical and mind that was weak (from hunger). But our
Lord Jesus Christ uses Gods Holy Words again to fight and resist the evil that
was at hand (Deuteronomy 6:16).
SeePsalms 91:11-12 & See Deuteronomy 6:16.
e) Luke 4:13 - Satan
left Jesus Christ - Now when Satan was
finished for now in tempting Jesus till another time to try and
tempt Jesus again as written (until an opportune
time). Satan had to leave Jesus because Jesus has commanded him to get behind
him, a phrase meaning to leave him. Now lets not forget that Satan tempted Jesus
when the 40 days of fasting (not eating) was over, not during the time of
begins his Ministry - Luke
4:14-15 - (Matthew
1:14-15) - To
a) Luke 4:14 - Jesus
Christ went to the Gentiles - Jesus
Christ has conquered, that is over came the devils temptations, thus
bringing his body mind and soul in complete
submission to the will of God so that he can take his Gospel, the Good news
to the people even though he faces heavy opposition
by very powerful people, Pharisees & Sadducees in Israel as well as heavy
opposition from the demons as well. The news of him drastically spread through
out the surrounding areas most
likely because they heard about his preaching "Repent
for the Kingdom of Heaven of Heaven is at Hand" (MT
4:15 - Jesus
Christ Taught in the Churches (Synagogues) -
At this time is when the people first started hearing
Jesus teach, and even the Pharisees & Sadducees were
not in opposition to Jesus Christ as of yet. Since this is all
NEW to them, and Jesus has not yet taught against
their heresies so with that "ALL" of the people glorified Jesus Christ because
of his teachings. It took time before Jesus Christ teachings would get more
hard nosed per say to where his teachings would greatly offend and threaten the
authority and heresies of the church leaders of his day.

preaches in Galilee - Luke
4:42-44 - (Matthew
4:42 - The
Disciples & Crowd Searched for Jesus Christ -
Jesus Christ went out from the people by himself to pray,
the disciples and crowd got very worried that he
wasn't with them. They wanted him to heal more of them, to speak\ to
them all the more. They are hungry for spiritual
food and in need.
4:43-44 - The
Purpose of Jesus Christ - Jesus Christ
is telling the disciples why he came, that is to preach the
"Good News" (Mt
4:23, Mk 1:14, Lk 1:19, 4:18) to the poor. (From
Barnes Commentary Notes) By the
who are destitute of the comforts of this life,
and who therefore may be more readily disposed to seek treasures in
heaven; all those
who are sensible of their sins, or are poor
in spirit (Matthew
5:3); and all the
"miserable" and the afflicted,Isaiah
fishermen called as Disciples - Luke
5:1-11 - (Matthew

5:1-3 - Jesus
Christ at Sea Gennesaret - Sea
Gennesaret is in the Northwest corner of the Sea of Galilee and its
name in Hebrew "ganne sarim, " means
"princely gardens". (Source from International Standard Bible Encyclopedia).
This is the first place that Jesus Christ started
calling his disciples from. Jesus asked Simon to put his boat out away
from shore a little bit so that all the people there
could see and hear him much better when he started preaching. We
must also mention Simons (Peter's) brother Andrew as
well (Matthew 4:18-20,
& Mark 1:16-18).
NOTE: I am
not sure why Luke did not mention Andrew in these verses.
5:4-7 - Jesus
Christ Teaches the 4 Disciples Their Faith will Catch Men -
Even though the fishermen worked hard at
trying to catch fish all night, they still obeyed
Jesus Christ when he told them to go out into the deep to lower their nets
once again. So even though they did not have the
faith that they would catch any fish, they did! A great number of fish! Jesus
Christ here has taught them that through their Faith in him that they can also
catch (Convert) a great number of
people to the Faith in Jesus Christ!
5:8-9 - Simon
(Peter) a Sinner - All who were there
knew they had seen a major miracle to which completely
shocked them, professional fishermen, that it brought
Simon (Peter) to his knees in repentance.
d) Luke5:10 - Fishers
of Men - To add that all of the men
were very afraid at the miracle that Jesus Christ did that Jesus
had to tell them, "Do not be afraid!" In that he
told them what they will be doing for his Glorious Kingdom, in saving souls.
e) Luke 5:11 - They
Sacrificed All For Jesus Christ! -
Even though their catch of fish were worth allot of money, more than
ever before in one catch they still gave up all of
that, including their fishing businesses and personal lives for the Kingdom
of Jesus Christ! In order for us to follow Jesus
Christ and serve him does require sacrifice on our part since Christ has
already sacrificed his life for us,do likewise we
should sacrifice our Lives for Jesus Christ!
