John the Baptist: Then and Now: Week 1

This Sunday I will begin a month long series on John the Baptist for University Presbyterian Church's "Living Our Faith" Class. If you're in the San Antonio area I welcome you to join us. It will be the Center for Education building, Room 4. I will begin with the Gospels of Mark and of Matthew, giving most of my attention to how John is presenting in the opening scene of GMark (1.1-14) and how Matthew 3.1-17 borrows and adapts that material. If time allows (class is one hour long from 9:45-10:45am) I will turn to Mt. 11.1.-19 where John sends emissaries from prison to ask if Jesus is the one.

Next week I'll be taking a look at Luke-Acts!
