Holman Bible Dictionary
In much of Eastern Christianity, Epiphany is a celebration of the baptism of Jesus, a recognition of His manifestation to humanity as the Son of God (Mark 1:9-11 ). In the early centuries, before the observance of Christmas, Epiphany celebrated both the birth of Jesus and His baptism. See Church Year .
