JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STUDY
JOHN THE BAPTIST IS ELIJAH
Let's begin, shall we? 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, who blazed the trail for Jesus.
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 and
when Jesus was 30 years old, we find John the Baptist
(Which is about the same age but six months older) living in the wilderness of Judea.
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
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
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
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 STUDY MYSTERY
JOHN THE BAPTIST IS ELIJAH CLUES
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.
We just read where John the Baptist was asked if he was Elijah, and he said NO.
However, there is Scripture where Jesus says that John the Baptist WAS Elijah.
And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses. But what went ye out for to see? A Prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the Kingdom of Heaven is greater than he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, (Elijah) which was for to come. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
It appears that Jesus said that Elijah and John told the wanna be Pharisees that he was not Elijah. The answer is Spiritual and that is why Jesus finihed with "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear
" ... If you would like a more in depth study on John the Baptist is Elijah, you can check out our Spirit of Elijah
Let us return to this study. 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. 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
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 in his life and this angered the King, but moreso ... His wife.
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).
LIFE OF JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STUDY
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
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
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
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.
JOHN THE BAPTIST BIBLE STUDY SUMMARY
Jesus was 30 when he began His
3:22-23 ... 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 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.
So, John baptized Jesus and when Jesus came up out of the water, the
Heavens opened and the Spirit of God came from Heaven like a dove
and remained on Jesus, 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
Oh, the story is just getting started ... There is SOOOOO much more to learn.
