What happens when God raises up a prophet outside the religious system with authority directly from Him? This study of the Forerunner answers that question by showing how the religious leaders reacted to Yochanan the Immerser / John the Baptist. Why did they ask him if he was Messiah, Elijah or the Prophet, or some other? How was he like Elijah? Why did the people love him and the leaders despise him? What is authority from God? How can you recognize it and why is that important today? These are some of the questions this program helps to answer. Many popular myths are also de-bunked in this program. For example, learn how we know Yochanan WAS NOT an Essene!
“Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand!” was the call of Yochanan the Immerser / John the Baptist, the Forerunner of Messiah’s first coming. Repentance was the goal and immersion / baptism was the means. What and why a forerunner? Why was repentance so important? Repentance for what? How were the forefathers involved? What relevance does the Forerunner’s call have for Israel today?
