In Matthew 3, God raises up John the Baptist to prepare the hearts of the people of Israel for the coming of their King and Messiah, Jesus Christ. John preaches that people need an authentic repentance and they express this through Baptism. Jesus then appears to be baptized and is affirmed by the Father for His ministry mission. Two thousand years later, God is still calling His people to authentic repentance to prepare our hearts for Jesus.
