In this message, we look at what's behind the priests and Levites being sent to question John the Baptizer, and what's behind his response. But overshadowing these events is the remarkable history of the location where these events occurred and where Jesus was baptized. Here centuries past collides with the present to give us greater insight into who and what Jesus of Nazareth was and remarkable things that have gone before in this place. We conclude with a look at an amazing prophecy that foretold the exact year in which the Messiah would appear.
