Every figure in the bible serves a different purpose, from enlightening readers with educational lessons to acting as a prophet to spreading the word of faith. Though there are countless figures with important messages among the bible’s pages, only a few had close connections to Jesus Christ throughout his lifetime on Earth. As Jesus crossed paths with and preached to people of all walks of life, one particular figure who was impactful in the New Testament was John the Baptist.
A Jewish prophet, John the Baptist preached of God’s Final Judgment. He preached, like Jesus did himself, to those who wished to repent and be forgiven before the Final Judgment. John the Baptist earned his name by baptizing those who were willing to repent, often in the waters of the Jordan River. The story of John the Baptist’s preaching is told throughout the four Gospels of the bible. John the Baptist is at times described as the man who came before Jesus himself to preach the word of god. He too had a group of followers, a set of disciples who believed in his message and who wanted to help him spread the word. And ultimately, John the Baptist himself baptizes the Messiah, fulfilling what he had preached for years: “He who is coming after me is mightier than I.”
