John preached that Jesus was the Son of God. At Jesus baptism, the Father and the Spirit made that plain too.

     15 And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not; 16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: 17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable. 18 And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the people.(KJV)

     21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, 22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.(KJV)

1. To the name of our salvation
Laud and honor let us pay,
Which for many a generation
Hid in God’s foreknowledge lay;
But with holy exultation
We may sing aloud today.

2. Jesus is the name we treasure,
Name beyond what words can tell;
Name of gladness, name of pleasure,
Ear and heart delighting well;
Name of sweetness, passing measure,
Saving us from sin and hell.

3. ‘Tis the name for adoration;
‘Tis the name of victory;
‘Tis the name for meditation
In this vale of misery;
‘Tis the name for veneration
By the citizens on high.

4. ‘Tis the name that whoso preacheth
Speaks like music to the ear;
Who in prayer this name beseecheth
Sweetest comfort findeth near:
Who its perfect wisdom reacheth
Heavenly joy possesseth here.

5. Jesus is the name prevailing
Over every name by right;
At this name, in terror quailing,
Powers of hell are put to flight;
God, in mercy never failing,
Saves us by this name of might.

6. Therefore we in love adoring
This most blessed name revere,
Holy Jesus,Thee imploring
So to write it in us here
That hereafter, heavenward soaring,
We may sing with angels there.

To Jordan Came the Christ, our Lord
