People's Bible Notes for Mark 1:10


Mr 1:10 Straightaway coming up out of the water. The Greek preposition translated "out of" is "ek", which means out from within. This could only be true of immersion. Thus all great and candid Pedo-baptist scholars concede that Christ was baptized.

Discussion for Mark 1:10

  • David King for verse 10
    Did Jesus not have the Holy Spirit living inside Him before this event?
  • Mershal Carpenter for verse 10
    First- Jesus was Baptized--Immersed. Second--God opened the Heavens. Third-God sent the Holy Spirit descending upon Jesus in the same manner as a Dove would. Jesus was fulfilling all righteousness by letting John Baptize Him. God verbally sanctioned this act Verbally so other viewers would know this was his plan for those who believed on Him in the future. Two thousand years later is still happening today. Thank GOD for his SON. Thanks
