Study 3 From the Book of Matthew is: Matthew 3
1. John the Baptist saw himself as preparing the way for Christ (verse 3). In what ways did he do this through (a) his preaching, and (b) his administration of baptism?
2. What do verses 13-15 tell us about the importance of His baptism to Jesus? How do you link this moment with the cross? Cf. Ps. 40:7-8; Lk. 12:50; 2 Cor. 5:21. Can you see the Trinity clearly at work in these verses?
