John the Baptist: The baptism of Jesus

TEXT: MARK 1:9-11

John the Baptist is nearing the end of his ministry as Jesus comes to him and is also baptized by John.

Mark uses three verses to describe this scene (verses 9-11), two verses to describe Jesus' temptation in the wilderness (Mark 1:12-13) and one verse to show that John the Baptist was put into prison after Jesus was tested in the wilderness (Mark 1:14).

That is quite a brief summary of events.

John the Baptist: Preaching repentance

TEXT: Mark 1-8

John the Baptist is perhaps one of the most colorful characters in the New Testament. If you ever met him, you certainly would remember him if you saw him again- even if you were far away from him.

And there's one thing for sure - he got everyone's attention when he came to town.
