Central Idea: The Messiah has come from Heaven, and all must go to Him. Vss. 22-24 - The evangelist sets the scene: Jesus and John the Baptist were both baptizing. Vss. 25-26 - A certain Jew begins discussing purification (presumably some issue pertaining to the baptisms) with John's disciples, who come to ask John about Jesus' baptizing. They seem upset that people are going to Jesus rather than John, but John explains why people SHOULD be going to Jesus. Vs. 27 - John's ministry was from heaven and it was not his place or in his power to make himself great. Vs. 28 - John was not the Messiah; Jesus was. Vs. 29 - John, as the "friend of the bridegroom," rejoiced because Jesus had come. Vs. 30 - Therefore, John's preparatory role was finished.
