In today's episode of Tough Texts, Scott Keith and Daniel Emery Pice explore two seemingly opposing passages from the Bible: John 1:19-28 and Matthew 11:7-15. Who is John the Baptist? Is he Elijah? Is he the Prophet? In John 1:19-28, we witness the interrogation of John the Baptist by the religious leaders of his time. How does this confrontation emphasize the role of John in preparing the way for Christ? In Matthew 11:7-15, Jesus speaks about John the Baptist, highlighting his unique role as the forerunner of the Messiah. Why does John the Baptist and Jesus provide different answers to the same question? Join us as we explore the context of these passages and more.
