John The Baptist’s Story

September 16, 2018 Max Frazier Series: The Thread of Redemption

The Gospel account begins with the story of the last Old Testament prophet. His name is John, whom we call “the Baptist.” John’s story begins with a miraculous birth narrative as both his parents, Zacharias and Elizabeth, were beyond the age of bearing children. The writer John simply says that “John was a man sent from God.” The Bible tells us little of John’s background until those weeks before Jesus comes to be baptized. John’s mission was to prepare the hearts of the people for the message Jesus would proclaim. John’s story is a true Faith@Home story.
