- Series: Luke - A Careful History
- Scripture: Luke 7:18-7:35
God promised in the Old Testament that he would send a messenger who would prepare the way for the Christ's arrival. John the Baptist was that messenger. In these passages, Luke gives us evidence of Jesus fulfilling God's promise. And while he didn't look like the kind of Messiah John expected, Jesus tells us not to get caught up in our preconceived ideas about him. Instead, we must come to Jesus with open eyes and open ears.
