Heaven Opened

Heaven Opened

Scripture: Matthew 3:13-17 (NRSVue)

Webster’s dictionary defines epiphany as an appearance or manifestation, especially of a divine being. An epiphany is a divine disclosure or revelation—a holy “aha” moment. It’s a thin place where the lines of heaven and earth are blurred and intermingled. All the gospel passages during the Sundays of Epiphany shed light on the mystery of who Jesus is. As we watch him speak and act in these stories, our picture of him gets a little more focused, and we catch glimpses in Christ of who God is and what God is doing in the world. This Sunday we’ll take a closer look at how Jesus’ baptism is an epiphany of his character and mission as God’s Son—to serve, rather than be served.
