John the Baptist (John 1:19:28)

John the Baptist

John the Baptist was an interesting character. He is the focus of today's passage:

John 1:19-28

While John the Baptist is the center of attention, he points others to Christ. He proclaimed a message of repentance. He told people to repent because the Kingdom of God was at hand. The word repent means turn. He told them to turn away from their sinfulness and turn toward Christ. He then baptized those who repented.
