Central Idea: John gave faithful testimony that his important ministry was, it was only a prelude to the coming Messiah. Vss. 19-20 - This passage presents a series of questions addressed to John the Baptist about his ministry. The fact that Pharisees sent priests and Levites to ask these questions suggest that they understood the immense religious significance of John's preaching, and probably assumed that he was the coming messiah. This idea further indicated by John's answer to their first question- "who are you?", which he answered negatively - "I am not the Christ," rather than positively - "I am the voice...." ("Confession" is more of an open declaration, not a shameful admission.) Vss. 21-23 - Since he was not the messiah, they pushed further to know his identity. He finally declares that he is the messenger prophesied by Isaiah. Vss. 24-27 - The questioners take one more step, and ask why he is baptizing. John redirects their focus from his actions to the One for whom he was preparing a way. John's ministry was a prelude to the Messiah; his preaching of repentance (and resultant baptisms) were to reconcile people to God and prepare them to worship the incarnate Word.
