Luke 4:1 (KJV) Full of the Holy Ghost

Luke 4:1 (KJV)
And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
This passage states both the obvious and the absurd. Jesus is the fullness of the Godhead bodily. He could be nothing but full of the Holy Ghost.
On the other hand, why would the fullness of the Godhead bodily need fullness of the Holy Ghost? It can only be in association with his humanity.
His fullness is sandwiched between two vital events:
  • His baptism and 
  • His temptation 
His baptism was an expression of submission. His temptation was an expression of dependence.
The fullness of the Holy Ghost, His total control of us is the product of absolute submission to God and full dependence upon God as expressed in His Word.
