Easter day 1/10: Jesus Anointed

Readings:

Baptism: Matthew 3:16-17

Passage read in the temple by Jesus about Himself: Isaiah 61:1-2 (Luke 4)

Anointed with perfume: Matthew 26:6-13

 

Explaination:

To be anointed meant to be chosen and sent for a possition of leadership (eg David’s anointing 1Samuel 16:13).

Therefore we see hear Jesus’ anointing at the beginning of His ministry (at His baptism), and towards the end of His earthly ministry, just before Its climax with His crusifiction & resurection. It is part of His Kingdom being established.

Jesus is The King, God’s chosen one to lead His peaple back to Him.
