The Ministry of John the Baptist (Matthew 3:1-12)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: John announced the ministry of Jesus with a call to repent.
In our bible story we learned:
1. Isaiah foretold John’s ministry.
2. John’s baptism called for repentance.
3. The ministry of Jesus is greater.
Where is the Gospel?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
John the Baptist clearly portrayed men as sinful, in need of a Savior. In Luke 3:6 John the Baptist quotes the prophet Isaiah who said: “All flesh shall see the salvation of God.” John was not merely introducing a great prophet; he was introducing the Lord himself, who would bring salvation to all people. This would come through the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
