Mark 1:9–15 (Listen)

In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.”

12 The Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. 13 And he was in the wilderness forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild animals, and the angels were ministering to him.

14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”

About Reverend Bob Edy: Bob was ordained (in mid-life!) in 1993 and appointed vicar of Ducklington in 1999. He was formally inducted as Rector of the parish in November 2013. From 1979 to 2008 he worked at Henry Box School as head of History, Head of Year and then Deputy Head. He is married to Ruth, father to Rhoda and Charlotte and grandfather to Esther, Benjy, Gemma and Isaac. Bob enjoys sport, particularly golf and cricket, and is very enthusiastic about the annual Greenbelt Festival. He enjoys discussing faith issues with individuals and small groups and feels that being a vicar is an enormous privilege - and quite hard work too! Bob left St Bartholomew's, in May 2015, for a slightly quieter life as Chaplain at Rendcomb College. We hope to welcome him back at a later date as a "guest" preacher.
