Matthew 3:1-11 - John The Baptist
Today we are continuing our study through God’s Word picking up after 400 years of silence since the book of Malachi. Much was occurring with the nation of Israel, yet God was silent. It is believed Matthew the tax collector was the author of this book. This book was written to the Jewish people prior to the destruction of the temple in AD 70. The main theme is to present Jesus Christ as the Messiah. The desire we have in this study is to become more Christ like in our lives as we listen to His teachings and future plans for us, His people. We will circle back in the first two chapters in a month as we will prepare to celebrate the Birth of Christ in December.
