If the Gospel of John is seen as a kind of “trial narrative,” then John the Baptist is the first witness who is called to testify on Christ’s behalf. And John’s declaration is perhaps a little different from what many today might expect. For example, he doesn’t point to Jesus saying, “Behold your best friend who will always be there for you,” nor does he point to Jesus as a kind of life-coach or spiritual therapist. Rather, in John’s view, Christians should primarily think of Jesus as “the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” On this program the hosts will take a look at the Old Testament roots of this pronouncement and discuss its present-day implications.
