Advent 3: John the Baptist
December 13, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us at the South Street Cafe at 5:30 on Wednesday for a study on John 1:6-8, 18-28 where we talk about John the Baptist and his understanding of himself as a prophet and preparer, and as himself as the precursor to the Messiah. Though the people wanted to believe that John was Elijah returned, or a new prophet, or even the Messiah himself, John declared himself to be none of those things. He declared himself to be a herald of the coming Messiah, the Lamb of God who would take away the sins of the world.
John understood both who he was and who he was not.
To be fully human, we must, as John did, define ourselves not on the basis of who we are in relation to the world, but who we are in relation to Christ.
