The Man Sent from God


The Ministry and Message of John the Baptist


Samuel W. Jennings



Product Description:

THERE WAS A MAN SENT FROM GOD, whose name was John. These words introduce us to one of the greatest men in the Bible. The Saviour, Himself, singled John out for the highest praise: 'Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist' (Mt.11:11). John's public ministry may have lasted for only two and a half years, but it was of crucial importance in the purposes of God, bringing an end to prophetic revelation, as it had taken place in the Old Testament, and announcing the coming of One Who was even greater than John. This book provides a detailed and comprehensive study of the life and ministry of John the Baptist, from the prophecies that went beforehand, to his martyrdom at the hands of Herod. This book summarises a great deal of material and offers much practical teaching, as well as devotional reflections on the person of Christ.

Samuel W. Jennings was commended to full time service in the work of the Lord in 1 969. Since then he has spent his time preaching the gospel and teaching the Holy Scriptures in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, the United States of America, and the West Indies. He is the author of a number of books, including The Perfect Servant Presented by Mark, Alpha and Omega: Studies in the Book of Revelation, and The Miracles of the Master: A Comparative Study of the Miracles in the four Gospels (also published by Scripture Teaching Library).
