Coram Deo: Daily Meditations on God’s Presence - Saturday, April 30, 2016

More than a Prophet

Matthew 11:7–15

John Calvin says the new covenant minister’s preaching is greater than John the Baptist’s because “it holds out Christ as having rendered complete and eternal satisfaction by his one sacrifice, as the conqueror of death and the Lord of life, and because it withdraws the veil, and elevates believers to the heavenly sanctuary.” John the Baptist was blessed, but we are more greatly favored to live in an era more cognizant of God’s grace in Christ.

For further study:

Zephaniah 1:7

The Bible in a year:

1 Kings 6–7
