From the time of the prophet Malachi, 400 years before, there had been no direct word from God to His people. Then suddenly a man appeared on the stage of the New Testament era. We know him by the name of John the Baptist, and his main role was to prepare Israel for their Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. This he faithfully did.
In this study you will not only follow the course of John's short life and ministry but be challenged by the selfless principles he exemplified in his character, words, and actions. As a "burning and shining lamp," John is a great example to all of us who want to stand for Christ passionately and unreservedly.
