The significance of John's message to the nation of Israel is only heightened when we see that he is baptizing. Yet it is important to remember the audience of his proclamation was not Gentiles, but the Jews, the physical descendants of Abraham. This episode examines the importance of baptism and how offensive it would have been for John to call the Jews to be baptized.

This video is part of the Opening Up the Gospels series.

This episode really struck me

This episode really struck me. The reality of John's message is more real to me than it ever has been. I also never thought about the need for this message to come to the Jewish people and how shaking and offensive it must have been. Thanks for sharing brother.
