The Baptist’s evidence for the Lamb of God

Text John 1:29-34

29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
30 This is the one I meant when I said, ’A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’
31 I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.”
32 Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him
33 And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ’The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’
34 I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”
The day following the questioning by the Jews, John sees Jesus coming toward him and says, Look ! There is the Lamb of God, Who is taking away the sin of the world ! This is the One of whom I said, a Man is coming on the scene after me Who outranks me because He existed in eternity before me. I did not know He was the Messiah at first; but in order that He might be made manifest unto Israel, so Israel might know Him, I purposely came immersing in water. And John testified, saying, I have seen the Spirit coming down as a dove out of heaven and abiding upon Him. And I did not know Him, before this incident, as the Messiah; but the One who sent me to immerse in the water, that One said to me, the One upon Whom you shall see the Spirit descending and abiding – this is the One Who immerses in the Holy Spirit. And I have seen and have testified that this One is The Son of God !
To conclude here, John the Baptist points the multitudes to Jesus of Nazareth as The Lamb of God. John then sets forth the God-given evidence for his testimony.
