Character ami .Vorlc of John, tlm
.Tohn was e great man. In nn
nouncing ids birth the angel said,
"He shall he great In the sight of the
Lord." He was not only great In the
Lord's sight, hut was great when
measured by the standards of men. In
the teaching of this lesson n survey
bhould he nuide or John's life and
I. Dirth and ministry Foretold
(Matt. .I:.'!; cf. Isa. 40:).
He was thought about and his work
planned long before he was born. Ho
rtime as God's messenger. Ills life was
n plan of (Jod. He was said to be a
man sent from Cod (John 1:0). Them
Is a sense In which every life Is
planned everyone Is sent from God.
Everyone should remember that God
has something to do with his lire.
II. His Character.
3. Humble (Luke .1:1). He did not
seek human praise and commendation.
Ills supreme concern was to proclaim
the Christ. He did not make himself
prominent was only n voice calling
upon people to prepare for the Mes
siah. His person and habits were a
protest against the luxury and hypo
crltlcnl formality of his time.
U. Courageous (Luke H:7). He faced
n great multitude and struck hard at
their sins. He did not trim his mes
sage to suit the crowd. He even tie
nounced ihe religious leaders of his
time nml demanded of them fruits
w'orthy of repentnnce.
HI. His Preaching (Luke 3:3-8).
1. Demanded Repentance (vv. JUt).
Suddenly emerging from his seclusion,
he came Into the region of the Jordan,
as a messenger of God, calling upon
the people to repent In preparation for
the coming of the Messiah.
2. Demanded I'ronfs of Penitence
(vv. 7, 8). He Insisted that their false
religions he abandoned their sinful
hearts renovated showed them that
the vile passions of their souls must
he uprooted. A change of mind, that
Is, the turning of the soul from sin to
God, was necessary. This Is a prepa
ration which must bo made before one
enn see and experience the salvation
IV. Jeaus' Testimony to John (Luke
7:'J4-28). Hecause John did, not seo
the Interval between the "sufferings
of Christ" and the "glory thnt should
follow" he wns perplexed. Therefore
he sent a deputation to .Trsna for light.
The prophets did not see, or nt least
did not mnke clear, the Interval be
tween the eiuclllxloii of Chtlst and Ills
second coming. The two events were
so presented as to appear to ho In close
succession. John In his preaching hns
stressed tho mighty Judgments which
should take place at the nppenrance of
the Messiah. The turn things were
taking (he himself being Imprisoned
with the gloomy prospect of death),
wns In great contrast ttv the coming of
the Messiah In fiery Judgment "thn
ax Is laid unto the root of the trees"
and "the chaff Is hurne.l up with un
qucnehnble fire" (Mntt. -10. 12). The
trend of events pu.zlel Mm. It was
not hick of faith, but confusion of
mind that prompted his Inquiry.
Christ's testimony defended him
ngulnst nny such nn Recusation. Christ
lndlcnted him against a vacillating
mind because of the sto-niT erf persecu
tion, lie was not like a rcsd shaken
hy the wind (v. 21). Ho bod lived a
life of self-denial, therrforc he did not
deny his faith In Christ bemuse of tha
dungeon (v. 2o). Jesus declared thnt
no grenter prophet hnd urlsvn. That
which perplexed John was the delay In
Judgmentthe day of GoiVt patleneo
while gntherlng out the Church. This
was n truth not disclosed to the
prophets thnt whhh Paul mtido
known because n sproUl revelation
had been granted (Kph 3:3).
V. The Martyrdom ef Jshn (Marie
