Testimony of the Baptist
As has been discussed, explain why the question of ceremonial
washing became a point of discussion in the context of baptism
in verses 23-26.
Explain Johns words in verses 27-30, specifically, explain
Johns analogy to the bride and bridegroom.
In vs 29, if Johns joy is complete, why do you
think he did not end his ministry and follow after Jesus, i.e.
becoming one of Jesus disciples?
Why does John say in vs 32 that no one accepts his
And in vs 33, it appears John in saying that whoever has
accepted the truth proves that God is truthful. How can act of
accepting the testimony certify that God is faithful?
Vs 36 is one to underline in your Bible. Compare with John 1:13,
John 3:3, and others (give some examples?). Note that the verb
has is in the present tense. When do we begin to
experience eternal life? What is the opposite of eternal life
(i.e. explain the term Gods wrath)?
