THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO LUKE - Chapter 3 - Verse 21

Verse 21. See Barnes on "Mt 3:13"; See Barnes on "Mt 3:14"

See Barnes on "Mt 3:15"; See Barnes on "Mt 3:16"

See Barnes on "Mt 3:17"

 

Jesus being baptized; or, Jesus having been baptized. This took place after the baptism, and not during its administration, Mt 3:16.

Praying. This circumstance is omitted by the other evangelists; and it shows,

1st. That Jesus was in the habit of prayer.

2nd. That it is proper to offer up special prayer at the administration of the ordinances of religion.

3rd. That it is possible to pray in the midst of a great multitude, yet in secret. The prayer consisted, doubtless, in lifting up the heart silently to God. So we may do it anywhere—about our daily toil—in the midst of multitudes, and thus may pray always.

{s} "it came to pass" Mt 3:13; Joh 1:32
