Keep working on the connection to Samuel and the "kingmaker" theme. I think it's a good one that not many people make as a quick assumption anymore.

I too love how John seems intent from the very beginning to claiming he's not the guy, but he guy is coming. I wonder what that means to us as we live our lives. Do we as followers of Christ, do enough to say where not the guy? How do you point to the guy when unlike John he's not going to be standing next to you walking and talking on his own?

Thanks for your thoughts, Nick. You ask some good questions. I think you hit the nail on the head with asking how we point to Jesus when he's not next us. I think it means point to both what he's done in our own lives personally as well as pointing to the hope that he offers for the world. Seems like a generic answer, but helpful when you think about what the texts say about John, namely that he will lead people to repentance and back to God.
