The story of John the Baptist precedes the ministry of Jesus in all four Gospels and is critical for rightly understanding why Jesus says what He says and does what He does. John speaks to the people of Israel of soon judgment and gives an urgent plea for repentance. The God of Israel was coming in person to reckon with His people and divide them. This episode begins to develop the details of John's message to Israel, some of which may be surprising to you!

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

Hey Josh -

Hey Josh -

Thanks for the link. I was very encouraged listening to these videos this morning. I really love the background to understanding the work of Jesus and the gospel. Thanks for taking time to break down the ideas that John is sharing.
