Episode 18: Advent Week 2 - John Son Of Zechariah

December 11, 2018

In this week's bonus episode we talk a little more about the Advent season and explore how in the Gospel of Luke John the Baptist isn't referred to as John the Baptist, but as John the Son of Zechariah. John's father was a priest and as a priest's son John would have had special privileges as Jewish Royalty.  BUT, instead of growing up to wear a crown of sorts, he dressed like a hippie and headed out to the desert where he served the community.  Why is that important?  And what's it have to do with Christmas?  And with you and me?  Let's talk about it.
