A sermon on Matthew 3:1-12, the appearance of John the Baptizer at the river Jordan. In thissermon Peter Smythe demonstrates the Old Testament scriptures supporting John's appearance and his preaching. In one significant point, Smythe shows how the prophet Jonah may be viewed as a type of Israel. But even though Israel would reject her Messiah, he'd be the faithful Israelite, the root of Jesse shooting out from Israel's stump.
