The ministry of John the Baptist (continued)

Adobe Acrobat

John the Baptist's preaching had a great effect. Many people turned from their wrong ways of life, back to the Lord. People then began to wonder - is this the promised one? John put them right, and in doing so, gave us a most helpful explanation of the worthiness and the work of Christ. John moreover modeled for us a faithful servant of the Lord - faithful through trials and even to death.

Luke 3:15-20

15And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not; 16John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire: 17Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable. 18And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the people. 19But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philip's wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done, 20Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison. (KJV)
