The Testimony of the Forerunner
Passage: John 1:19–1:34
Pastor Brent gives us three aspects of John’s testimony that proclaim and exalt Jesus as the Son of God.
The Apostle John has made some strong claims in the first eighteen verses of chapter one. He detailed truth after truth that presented Jesus as the Son of God. These truths stand high and majestic, a Mount Everest of theology concerning the Savior.
John is fully aware that his claims need to be backed up by witnesses. His gospel plays out almost like a courtroom scene where he makes his opening arguments and then begins to call his witnesses and his first witness is John the Baptist.
