The life and ministry of John the Baptist can be summarized in the opening few verses of John’s gospel. John 1:6-9 states:
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.
I’ve got a couple of questions. What is the Light? How does he bear witness of that Light? Is it something that only he can do or can I be that witness also? It looks like there is so much more here than meets the eye.
There is. Keep listening.
The following is a study of John 1:6-13.
