Episode #11: The Ministries of John and Jesus

Baptism of Jesus by Gustav DoréGustav Doré’s rendering of the Baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist.

Consider the days mentioned in John 1 & 2. “The third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee” (John 2:1); but what about the other two days? Trace back each following day to the first mentioned, John 1:19, and you find that the third day is actually the fifth. But how and why?

For that matter, how did the miracle at the wedding reveal Christ’s glory? How is Nathanael a key figure in the revelation?  All this and more are made clear in this interesting and original approach to the beginning of John’s Gospel.

[Note: There is some faint back-chatter in the audio, which was inherited from the archival master cassette.  Apparently, the original recording was made to a re-used tape which had not been completely erased.  Nevertheless, we’re thankful to be able to offer this message despite this audio imperfection.]

Poems & Choruses Quoted:

  • Indifference or When Jesus Came to Golgotha by Geoffrey Studdert-Kennedy
  • I’ve Got the New Wine in My Soul— Editor’s note: Unable to find the lyrics of this chorus online, let alone a clear attribution, I’m going to go out on a limb and state from memory:
    • The song was performed by (and probably written by) Roy Turner and the Cameron Family
    • The lyrics are as follows:
I’ve got the new wine in my soul!
Praise the Lord, His Spirit made me whole!
I’m happy, glad, and free,
Enjoying liberty
As the moments roll!
I’ve got the new wine in my soul!
Praise the Lord, I’m under His control!
I’ve said “goodbye” to trouble,
And now I’ve got the bubble
Of the new wine in my soul!
  • The last time I heard this played, it was a from an Cameron Family LP record at the home of John, Bettie, and Gail Tyler (now Yundt).  This song, and many other revival choruses, have been reissued on Roy Turner and the Camerons (CD 1).  (The reason I can write the lyrics from memory is that this and many other songs from that album are still “singing me” after forty years.)
