JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STUDY

Most have heard of John the Baptist and know he was a man chosen by God to come before Jesus and preach repentance. John the Baptist was filled with Holy Ghost fire! Letís learn more about John the Baptist, the cousin of Jesus who blazed the trail for our Lordís ministry.

JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STUDY ON JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STORY WITH JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STUDY MESSAGE

The last thing we read about Jesus from the Bible, was when He was talking with the teachers and doctors in the temple at age 12. Nothing else is written of Him for the next eighteen years. After the eighteen years have passed and Jesus is about 30 years old we find John the Baptist (Which is about the same age but six months older) living in the wilderness of Judśa.

John the Baptist wore clothes made of camelís hair and a leather belt and he ate locusts and wild honey. The Word of God came to John the Baptist so he came into the country around Jordan and started to preach about the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

Water Baptism, which was how John the Baptist cleansed the sins of the JEWISH people, was a way of cleansing you from your sins prior to Jesus who is now the LIVING water and the ONLY way to TRULY have your sins cleansed. The act of water baptism is still practiced today as a type of physical expression. To learn more on this topic, see the WATER BAPTISM page.

A few Prophets from the Old Testament spoke about John. Isaiah called him the voice of one that cries in the wilderness (Isaiah 40:3). The prophet Malachi also spoke of John as the forerunner of Jesus when he spoke Godís Words (Malachi 3:1), Behold, I will send my messenger and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to His temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, He shall come, says the Lord of hosts.

The people of Jerusalem and all Judśa and all around Jordan were baptized by John in the Jordan river and they confessed their sins. This is why he became known as John the Baptist.

When John saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees (The religious leaders of the time) come to his baptism, he asked them, O generation of vipers, who warned you to run from the wrath to come? Make your actions worthy of repentance and donít think to yourselves; We have Abraham as our father because I tell you, God is able to make children of Abraham out of these stones. Know also that the axe cuts at the root of the trees: every tree that doesnít produce good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

See John the Baptist as well as all of the prophets were aware that the religious leaders were hypocrites and were not right in the eyes of the Lord.

JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STORY ON JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STUDY PARABLE WITH JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STUDY MESSAGE

The people asked John how they should live and John answered, If you have two coats, give one to someone who has none and if you have food, do the same. Then tax collectors came to be baptized too and asked John how they should live. John told them, Collect no more than what youíre ordered to. And the soldiers asked, And what should we do? John answered them, Do violence to nobody, donít accuse anyone falsely, and be content with your wages.

The Jewish Religious leaders sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask John who he was, and the people wondered if he was the Christ or not. John declared, I am not the Christ. They asked, Then are you Elijah? John said, I am not. So they asked him, Who do you say you are, so we can tell the people that sent us? John said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness. Make straight the way of the Lord, as the prophet Isaiah said.

The messengers asking John who he was were Pharisees and they asked him, Why do you baptize if youíre not the Christ or Elijah? John answered, I truly baptize you in water, but there is one of your own people who you donít know, it is He, who will come after me who is preferred before me, whose shoes Iím not worthy to unloose, Heíll baptize with the Holy Ghost and with fire. John is explaining that he baptizes with water but Jesus will baptize with the Holy Ghost.

John continues ... His fan (used to separate the grain from the waste) is in His hand and Heíll thoroughly clean His floor and gather the wheat into His garner, but Heíll burn the chaff with unquenchable fire. John is referring to God separating the good from the bad during the End Times ...

John preached many other things to the people. He also criticized king Herod because Herod married Herodias, who was Herodís brother Philipís wife, and for all the other evil things he had done.

Then Jesus came from Galilee to Jordan to be baptized of John. When John saw Jesus he said, Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world. This is who I spoke of when I said, After me comes a man who is preferred before me: because He was before me. I didnít know Him, except that He would be made known to Israel, so I have come baptizing with water.

John said to Jesus, I need to be baptized of you, and you come to me? Jesus answered, Allow it to be. We must fulfill all righteousness.

John the Baptist told Jesus at the baptism of Jesus that it was Jesus that should be baptizing John. Jesus told John that they needed to fulfill all righteousness (Matthew 3:13-15).

JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE PROPHECY ON JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE PURPOSE WITH JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE MESSAGE

Most do not understand what Jesus meant when He said that He and John were to "fulfill all righteousness" ... He was referring to Spiritual fulfilling of a Holy day known as Day of Atonement described in (Leviticus 16:21-31).

On the 10th day of the seventh month the Levite priest of Israel at the time (which was John the Baptist at this point in time), was to confess the sins of the people and put these sins onto an he goat and send the he goat into the wilderness. This he goat would then have all the sins of the people on him.

John the Baptist was a Levite priest and Jesus did take the sins of the people upon Himself. After the baptism of Jesus, He went into the wilderness for 40 days and was tempted by the devil (Matthew 4:1-11).

This also means that Jesus' ministry began when He was baptized on the 10th day of the 7th month and lasted until Passover which is the 14th day of the 1st month. There are 360 days in a Jewish year.

Jesus was 30 when he began His ministry Ö Luke 3:22-23  Ö His ministry lasted three years plus. The Gospel of John describes three different Passover feasts over the course of Jesus' ministry. This implies that Jesus preached for a period of three years ... John 2:13, John 6:4 and John 11:55 ... It began at the Day of Atonement and ended on Passover which is 6 months apart. So Jesusí ministry was 3 and a half years long.

 

BACK TO THE JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STORY ...

So John baptized Jesus and when Jesus came up out of the water, the Heavens opened and the Spirit of God descended from Heaven like a dove and remained on Him, and a voice from Heaven said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. God gave us prophecy of this event in the Psalms of David (Psalms 2:7). John testified that when the Word of God came to him, GOD said, The one you see the Spirit descending upon, is the one who baptizes with the Holy Ghost. Oh, the story is just getting started ... There is SOOOOO much more to learn.

THE JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STUDY SUMMARY IS THAT THE JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STUDY PROPHECY REVEALS THAT JESUS IS LORD.
