Dear friend of St. Athanasius Academy:

Who is this Son of Mary in the Waters of the Jordan?

In January, we celebrate the Baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist in the River Jordan. Last month, we began to explore what Jesus – our Christ – came to reveal and remind us, through His Incarnation. Our hope is to help develope a deeper sense of this divine Son, coming forth from the womb of Mary – the One Who is the Child and the Immanuel.

To help us understand Who Jesus is – the Incarnate Word – let us seek the wisdom of Isaiah. Prophet Isaiah is often referred to as an Old Testament Evangelist, whose words were inspired by the Spirit of the Lord. Here we discover the Virgin Mary, the dynamic reality of her Son being both her Child and the Immanuel, and our Father – Isaiah 7:14. It helps bring fulness to the mystery of His Baptism. That Jesus is not a human person, but instead a divine Person. That He reveals Himself to be both Son of Man through Mary and Son of His eternal Father, and further, the Son of Mary is from in the beginning, our Father.
