Who is John the Baptist? (John 1:19-28, Pt. B)

Home » Teaching » New Testament » John » Who Is John The Baptist John 119 28 Pt B |  February 4, 2018

John the Baptist was asked three questions: "Are you the Christ?", "Are you Elijah?" and "Are you the Prophet?" John said he was not Elijah (whose return was prophesied in Malachi), but Jesus said that John was the Elijah to come. How do we resolve this apparent contradiction? Also, what is this reference to "the Prophet" all about? Does this refer to Mohammad, as claimed by 1.8 billion Muslims? In this lesson we use the Scriptures to answer that question, and dismantle one of the central claims of Islam in the process.
