The Offense of the Cross

John the Baptist has something of a crisis of faith as he is in prison, awaiting martyrdom. He sends messengers to Jesus to ask if he is the one to come or should we seek another? John needs to see the glory of the gospel and learn that it is greater than he had imagined. We also need to see this so that we will not be discouraged with the trials we must face. The text is Matthew 11:1-6.

We will consider these three points from the text:
1. John’s question of doubt.
2. Jesus’ announcement of the good news.
3. Encouragement for our faith.
