Verse of the Day (December 19, 2019)

Verse of the Day (December 19, 2019) #BMSeminary – This knowledge, brought by John the Baptist, prepares the way for the coming of Jesus. Such knowledge is not merely theoretical or cognitive but deeply experiential, resulting in a fundamental change of heart and behavior (e.g., “repentance”; cf. 3:7–8). Salvation and the forgiveness of … sins (cf. 3:3) reveal the nature of the redemption brought by the Christ. [the sunrise shall visit us … to give light] Probably a metaphor referring to the coming of the Messiah (cf. Isa. 60:2–3; Mal. 4:2; and perhaps Num. 24:17). (ESV Study Bible)
