What Kind of King?


Royal Herald: Make way for the king!  (3:1)

Mounting Hope: The King is coming!  (3:2-6)

Differing Expectations: What kind of King?  (3:7-12)

Divine Confirmation: Will the real King please stand up? (3:13-17)

Now what?  Living between the advents.


Questions for Discussion

  1. Repentance was a significant part of the New Testament message (Matt. 3:1; 4:17; Acts 2:37-38; 20:21).  What does repentance actually mean?  What does it look like today?  Why don’t we hear about it much?
  2. Why was John the Baptist (and later Jesus) so hard on the Pharisees and Sadducees?  Do we have any of their tendencies today?
  3. What does the baptism of Jesus tell us about Jesus?  About the Trinity?  About the role of the Spirit in Jesus’ ministry?
