Enjoyed this John. JTB seems to be a paradox, reigning fire and brimstone, then telling them to go home and share their possessions, not to cheat or extort money from others. Were Jesus' sermons written back into John's ministry or can these two images of John be reconciled? I rather like the line, 'be worthy of your repentance' as it calls people into dialogue with what is going on, rather than judgement being something far off at the end of time - if your come to be baptised - let it change your behaviour!

Good point, Stuart, which you made in time for me to integrate your observation into my evening service! It's very true that John the Baptist's message isn't all bad news...
