Jesus & John the Baptist

Matthew 3:1-12

In the early chapters of his gospel,  Matthew compares Jesus with various figures to give us a sense of who he is and how he’s set apart as Lord and Messiah. This year for Advent and Christmas, we’re looking at some of those contrasts to better understand who Jesus is and what kind of Savior he is for us as his people. Today we’ll look at the contrast Matthew presents between Jesus and John the Baptist.
