The gospel treatment of John the Baptist
Rupert, Lynn Hoover
MetadataShow full item record
It is the contention of this writer that the Gospels have been unfair to John in their treatment of him. In their record he has been compared only with Jesus; he is reduced to the mere office of witness; his prophetic contribution is more or less ignored; his effect upon the people is minimized; and, no credit is given him for his great influence upon Jesus. Because of these facts, I hold that the real John and his great contribution to Christian history has been lost if we trust merely the Gospel record.
