Even those who know or think they know Jesus Christ have much more to learn. God’s word is the source that reveals who he is, and not only what he has done, but what he is doing and will do for the benefit of mankind.
Shortly after John the Baptist was born, his father, Zacharias, who was a priest, prophesied of his mission. Among other things, Zacharias prophesied of John the Baptist, that he would: “…go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways” (Luke 1:76).
“To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, To guide our feet into the way of peace” (Luke 1:79).
Yet, although the world desperately needs peace, the world does not know the way of peace.
