John, Prophet and Fulfillment of Prophecy

An audio recording of Pastor Hinkle’s sermon on Matthew 3:1-12 given December 4, 2016.

Matthew points out that the prophet John the Baptist was himself the fulfillment of a prophecy of Isaiah recorded in the 40th chapter of the Book of Isaiah. Malachi also spoke of his coming. As a prophet, John called God’s people to prepare for the coming of their God by repentance and baptism. We should prepare in similar fashion to meet our God and Lord, Jesus Christ.
