Central Idea: God provided the Spirit as a witness to John the Baptist to confirm that Jesus was the Messiah. Vs. 29a. "The next day" - The author's oft-used way of continuing a narrative. The subsequent passage through verse 34 is divided into two sections, each beginning with "John said." Vss. 29b-31 - The purpose of John's ministry was to reveal Jesus to the nation of Israel. Vss. 31-34 - Jesus was revealed to John through the actions of the Holy Spirit, which both identified Jesus and confirmed that He was from God. Other thoughts - These two sections are bracketed by the two most definitive statements in the passage: "The Lamb of God…" and "this is the Son of God." Between these two statements, the Baptist explains the transition from his ministry to Jesus' ministry. In both sections, the Baptist declares that he didn't know Him (vss. 30 and 33). Since Jesus and the Baptist were closely related, it seems unlikely that John was unaware of Jesus. Rather, his point is probably that he preached, not for any personal gain or favor, but at God's direction to prepare the way for God's Kingdom to be established through the ministry of the Messiah.
