Why did Jesus wait until 30 to be baptized?
Everything in the Bible fits together and makes sense. So when Jesus was baptized at age thirty, it was the start of his ministry. And the reason why he was baptized at the age of thirty is because – that is the minimum age for a priest. And Jesus had to be anointed to start his priestly and his kingly ministry.
What did Jesus do before he started his ministry?
The tone of the passage leading to the question “Is not this the carpenter?” suggests familiarity with Jesus in the area, reinforcing that he had been generally seen as a carpenter in the gospel account before the start of his ministry.
Why did God wait for Jesus?
To wait until human theological development had evolved to the point where we could understand Jesus. One final view is that God waited for so long because mankind had to develop socially and spiritually enough in order to understand and receive the revelation of Jesus Christ.
Where was Jesus before he started his ministry?
In the Christian gospels, the ministry of Jesus begins with his baptism in the countryside of Palestine and Transjordan, near the river Jordan by John the Baptist, and ends in Jerusalem, following the Last Supper with his disciples.
Why does God wait?
God uses seasons of waiting to prepare us for what’s coming, to draw us closer to Him, and to make sure His promises are fulfilled at the proper time.
How many days did Jesus wait before going to Lazarus?
Jesus was about to demonstrate that he was the son of God, waiting four days for someone to be dead before he raised them from the dead. For God’s glory.
Why did Jesus wait for two days before going to Bethany?
Because when Jesus received the message of Lazarus’s sickness, Lazarus was already dead and buried! This actually helps us to understand why Jesus would wait at Bethabara for two more days even after receiving the urgent summons. Whatever happened, it turns out that Jesus had reached Bethany just in time.
