Matthew 3:1-6, Matthew 11:2-15

Key verse: Matthew 11:11

Big idea: John was the link between the OT and the new. He came as a second Elijah calling people to repent and renew the covenant ready for the Messiah’s arrival. Yet John still only tasted the covenant of grace that was about to pour forth. This is shown in his doubt over Jesus. Jesus is the beginning of a new epoch. Have you missed the remarkable newness of Jesus.
