John the Baptist is clearly one of the most important, yet ignored, eschatological figures in the New Testament. He was, after all, according to Jesus himself, “The Voice” crying in the wilderness to prepare for the coming of the Lord in judgment. He was likewised “The Messenger” to prepare for the coming of the Lord to his temple in judgment when non one could stand before him, at his coming! He was also Elijah!
I just posted the first in a short series on John. There is much, much more to be found in my book Who Is This Babylon.
