Behold the Lamb of God

John the Baptist came to prepare men to meet Christ. When Jesus presented Himself publically, John quickly began pointing his own followers to Christ. He understood that Jesus must increase, but that John must decrease.

John 1:35-51

  • Two disciples went with Jesus for the day.
  • One of them was Andrew, who left to tell his brother Simon Peter that Jesus is the Christ.
  • The second was Philip, who left to tell his friend Nathaniel who met Jesus and said that Jesus is the Son of God, the King of Israel.
  • Here is a beginning of the twelve apostles.
