Catch-up Friday

We’ve been working through chapter one of John’s Gospel, most recently looking at the character of John the Baptist. (Attention turns to some of his followers, next week.) John denied he was the Messiah. Nor was he Elijah or the prophet like Moses. Instead, he described himself as the “voice” preparing a way for God to return to Jerusalem as king. So this week on catch-up Friday, have a look at the background to that expectation by reading Isaiah 40.

What would John’s audience have been expecting when he described himself as that “voice” (Isaiah 40:3)?
