Who is Jesus: A Study of Mark 1:9-15

The first clue is Mark 1:1 which tells us about the good news of the Kingdom of God. Jesus is the Messiah who leads Israel through the red sea, into the wilderness, through the Jordon River into Canaan (Ex. 32:20). A second clue appears in 1:9–10 when Jesus was baptized and the Spirit descended on him like a dove. There also is a clear connection between Jesus and the prophecies of Isaiah 64:1. The verb “to tear open” is a plea for God to forgive the sins of the people of Judah, secure its prosperity and establish justice in the world.
