The Greatest Day in History?

Here's a bit of Bible trivia that I find interesting. I noted yesterday that Jews see the giving of the Ten Commandments as the greatest day in history. One reason is that God spoke to ALL the Israelites at one time rather than to just one person. In their opinion this only happened once in all of history and never again. Therefore it is the greatest day (plus THEY were the ones chosen to hear from God, making it extra special!)

But Christians believe that there is another day that God spoke from heaven. Do you know when that was?

The gospels report that God’s voice spoke to everyone at Jesus’ baptism saying, “This is my son in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17. This is an interesting comparison since Jesus is considered the Word of God come in the flesh. In other words, both times God sent his Word he spoke from heaven to all people.
