The Man Sent from God
The Ministry and Message of John the Baptist
Samuel W. Jennings
|Product Description: |
THERE WAS A MAN SENT FROM GOD, whose name was John. These words introduce us to one of the greatest men in the Bible. The Saviour, Himself, singled John out for the highest praise: 'Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist' (Mt.11:11). John's public ministry may have lasted for only two and a half years, but it was of crucial importance in the purposes of God, bringing an end to prophetic revelation, as it had taken place in the Old Testament, and announcing the coming of One Who was even greater than John. This book provides a detailed and comprehensive study of the life and ministry of John the Baptist, from the prophecies that went beforehand, to his martyrdom at the hands of Herod. This book summarises a great deal of material and offers much practical teaching, as well as devotional reflections on the person of Christ.
