In the mid to late 1990’s Steve Brennecke was an attorney here in Grinnell. Recently he was back in Grinnell on (10-13-19) at Calvary Baptist Church and he presented an amazing lesson on the life of John the Baptist (or as Steve calls him, John the Immerser). It was evident that Steve had spent a good amount of time on this study, and the lesson was so intriguing to me that I knew I needed to share it with the rest of you as well. I’ll use the NKJV for this study…pretty sure that’s what Steve probably used to build this lesson.
Outline of this 6 part study…
