A02: The Second Sunday of Advent, Year A (2019)

David Lose

“But still, he is a really nice guy…the tell-tale words we use too often to soften the unkind things we say about others.” David Lose, Senior Pastor of Mount Olivet Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, says that today’s passage, Matthew 3:1-12, is the biblical version of this phrase. Lose says that the Gospel writers don’t quite know what to make of John the Baptist. Listen as Lose explores how the author of Matthew uses the person of John the Baptist to point to Jesus in a unique way.
