A sense of urgency

It is useful and edifying to read a Gospel continuously, from start to finish. It allows us to notice details that we miss by hearing it presented piecemeal at Sunday Mass.

Jesus was baptized by John in the Jordan. And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens opened. (v. 10)
