John 1:19-34

  1. What do we learn here about:
    (a) the character,
    (b) the work, of John the Baptist?
    See also verses 6-8 and 3:28-30.
  2. Verses 26-34. What testimony does John the Baptist bear here to Jesus?
    How much of this did John learn about him through his experience at Christ’s baptism?
    Do these truths mean something to you?

Note. Verse 29. ‘John saw Jesus coming’: probably after the forty days in the wilderness, when he was tempted by Satan. That Jesus’ baptism had already taken place is showed by verse 32. Cf. Luke 3:21, 22.
