In Matthew 3, we are introduced to John the Baptist, the forerunner of King Jesus. He had a simple and straightforward message, "Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." John had an enormous impact on the population and many people responded by being baptized in the Jordan and confessing their sins. In this Bible Study, we looked at what repentance is and what baptism is. We also considered the import of the kingdom of heaven and the times that John the Baptist lived in.
