Fr. Creighton-Jobe speaks of the longing of the Hebrew people for the fulfillment of redemption only the Messiah could bring. John the Baptist, last of the Old Testament prophets, declares the way to restore the relationship of friendship with God is by repentance and baptism. Christ then assimilates John’s work into his own, allowing people to share in his divine life.
