John 3:22-36

Sunday’s Reading was John 3:22-36. This one actually needs to be extended to John 4:1-3. The Gospel of John dates to the 90s. It is a relatively late and distant interpretation of Jesus Christ. John the Baptist is a distant memory surely not worthy of baptizing Jesus. To the author it is even important to stress Jesus’ superiority over the Baptist by stating that Jesus won more disciples than John – he did not even baptize himself.
