John the Baptist
Bible Text: John 1:6-8 | Speaker: Tim Cartwright | Series: Come & See
#2 in the series Come & See.
We began this series in the Gospel of John last week. Pastor Gary did an excellent job laying out the background, theme, and purpose of the book. One of the details that he mentioned was the fact that the author of this book presents a lawyer’s brief representing the case for Jesus versus the world. As we all know, any good lawyer has to have star witnesses. As you can observe in Matthew 11:11, there is no greater witness than the man we will discuss in our passage today, John the Baptist. As a matter of face, in all 3 synoptic Gospels, the record of Jesus’ ministry is introduced by detailing John the Baptist’s ministry.
