Fairly Short, Full of Truth (John 3:31-36)


Here the apostle John summarizes the two events of chapter three, Jesus with Nicodemus and John the Baptist with his disciples. Jesus explained the meaning of “born again” to Nicodemus. Following God requires faith in Jesus as the savior. John the Baptist explained that his purpose was not to create a following for himself, but to point others to Christ.

Now, John the apostle as the narrator of the gospel summarizes with commentary. John the Baptist was a messenger from God with a message from God. Jesus is much more than just a messenger. He is the message. He is God.
