John The Baptist, Forerunner of Christ

Some people think that they are just too smart and too educated to believe the Christian message. But often such people reject what they don’t know or understand. Paul seeks to head off such a knee-jerk rejection to his claim that Jesus is the savior brought to Israel by God through appeal to an indisputable historical record. Both the activity and identity of John the Baptist is that public record of truth which Paul points to in order to confirm his claim about Jesus made to this Jewish audience in the synagogue of Pisidian Antioch as he seeks to lead them to faith in Christ.
