JOHN 3: 33-36. The Certified Revealer

Not only is Jesus an able and willing Revealer, he is also certified to reveal God’s truth. When you go to a doctor’s office, you look on the wall to see a proper medical-school diploma.

God and the Moral Absolutes anchored in him provide the path.

That also is why John has the article: had been cast “into the prison,” referring his readers to this famous prison and the Baptist’s confinement there, which they knew of the other evangelists.
