Lol yea, that is weird.
I like that John is called to immerser. The original word for baptize means to plunge under, so the whole sprinkling theory goes out the window.
I guess you meant the last prophet spoken of by name? But John was definitely not the last prophet. Paul talks about prophets and then in Revelation there are the 2 witnesses, which are also prophets.
I didn't get any extra reading done this weekend, way to go girls!
It is cool that John recognized Jesus when they were still in the womb. But it makes sense. Jesus is God and it says John was born with the Holy Spirit. So somewhere in the gospel, I'm thinking in John, Hes talking about how the Spirit bears witness with Jesus. So God recognizes and bear witness of Himself.
