The Ministry Of The Holy Spirit

"The Holy Spirit was Active in Christ's Ministry"

Jesus’ earthly ministry was empowered by the Holy Spirit, as was predicted in Hebrew Scripture (Isaiah 11:1-2, 42:1, 61:1). The Spirit descended and remained upon Jesus at His baptism (Matthew 3:16; Luke 3:21-22; John 1:32), filling Him (Luke 4:1) and anointing Him to preach and to heal (Matthew 12:17; Luke 4:17-21).
