Know His Voice - Day 15

Today's Know His Voice reading is Mark 1-3.
"Jesus just arrives fully grown, of indeterminate age, from Nazareth to be baptized by John in the Jordan (Mk. 1:9). One is reminded of Aslan, the great lion in the Narnia Chronicles of C.S. Lewis, who suddenly appears from over the sea without warning but exactly when he is needed:
'Aslan was among them though no one had seen him coming.' (C.S. Lewis, The Horse and His Boy, Penguin Books, 1965, p.182).'
(Richard Burridge, Four Gospels, One Jesus?, Eerdmans, 1994, 33,35)
