Matthew 3:1-12 – Advent 2 (A)

Today, we talk about the first encounter of Jesus with John the Baptist.

John's preaching of the kingdom shows us the true meaning of repentance – not as something we must do to prepare for the gospel promise, but something God does to us with the word of judgment. We also talk about the meaning of John's baptism, and its relationship to the Christian sacrament of baptism.
