King-Servant Christology in Matthew’s Gospel

The heavenly voice in the Matthean account of Jesus’ baptism is a composite citation, which echoes two Old Testament passages (Psalm 2:7 & Isaiah 42:1-4). The baptism of Jesus can be taken as his commissioning for the messianic mission. At the time of baptism Jesus is identified as the King and the Servant. When Matthew combines these two themes he portrays Jesus as the King with a difference: Jesus is the king who would fulfill the mission as the Servant of Yahweh.
