Significance of Jesus’s Baptism by John the Baptist

One of the most famous people in the world and in the Bible has one of the most surprising mysteries behind him that few people know. It will make you see the New Testament in a new way. The mystery is around a group of priests known as the Kohanim. The Kohanim where the priests of Israel. They were the sons of Aaron and with those who ministered in the temple and were given charge over the offerings and the sacrifices by which the people of Israel could be reconciled back to God. These priests were specially trained to make sure that every sacrifice met the strict standards as dictated in the Torah. When the Messiah came as the final and ultimate sacrifice He would be the one to reconcile all people. He came at a time when the temple was still standing, the priesthood of Israel was still in effect. The sons of Aaron had charge over the sacrifices and had to okay and certify that the sacrifice was right and could be offered up. So logically should there have been a priest in some way they can give that recognition and okay to say yes, this is a certified sacrifice? You probably never saw that in the Gospel and probably have a thought about it either but there was somebody there he was born to the choline and he was born to the house of Aaron. He was not only a priest, he was ascended from Aron on both his father and his mother’s side. They didn’t have to have that but he had and he is a pure blood of priests even more than a High Priest. The child was given the name Johanna. It might sound silly to you but you probably know him as John the Baptist. His main occupation was being a Kohanim. If you remember the story when Jesus was coming toward him as he was baptizing in the river Jordan. In John 1:26-29 it is written;

  1. John answered them saying, “I baptize in water, {but} among you stands One whom you do not know. 27. “{It is} He who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie.” 28.  These things took place in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29.  The next day he *saw Jesus coming to him and *said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

It was John the Baptist that was the first one to identify Him as the sacrificial lamb. So you can see that God made sure to have a priest of Arron to certify the Lamb for salvation. That means that our sins are completely and certifiably taken away forever, providing we dedicate our lives to the Lord. The fact that Jesus was referred to as the Lamb of God came with priestly certification. As you can see there is a lot more to John the Baptist even maybe that John the Baptist realized himself. There is more to our life as well if we have an identity with God and this is something that is gigantic but we need to walk in His will to find it. Whatever thing you’re dealing with of our past has been removed by the Lamb of God. This is the same Lamb who had his own priest, his own: name to identify him as so perfect that only God could put it together and has truly taken away all our sins and has been certified, sealed, and delivered. All that from a mystery that goes back over 3000 years to the times of Isaac.
