Baptismal Revelation

Some early thoughts. 
Jesus' baptism (Mark 1:9-11) is: 

His anointing to the Kingship (Psalm 2 & 2 Samuel 7:14). 
His washing for the priesthood? 
His Spirit-filling as a prophet of God? 

There is also something of an echo in Mark 1:11 from Isaiah 42:1-2. Jesus is the Son and the Servant.
