Matthew: The King's Herald - Part II

Speaker: Brandon Phillips Series: Matthew: The King and His Glory Category: Matthew Scripture: Matthew 3:1–12


Matthew uses the ministry of the King’s herald, John the Baptist, as further proof that Jesus is the true King who deserves our worship. John’s ministry was marked by: 

  • Being a Unique Messenger (Matt 3:1, 3:3-4) 
  • Preaching an Unrivaled Message (Matt 3:2) 
  • Having an Unusual Mission (Matt 3:5-6)
  • Putting up an Uncompromising Mirror (Matt 3:7-12)
