In the Bible, John the Baptist sent a message to Jesus, "Are you the one or do we look for another". (Matthew 11.1-6; Malachi 3.1-5) John's personal ideas of the Messiah did not match Jesus public ministry. When you read Jesus' reply is based on evidence, 'Go and tell John the things which you hear and see."

The testimony and witness of Jesus was evident. Jesus claim to the title of the Messiah was not a self-justification, but rather matched the Bible prophecy description of the One who would break the curse of sin, that is death and disease and would take away the sins of the world. The first could be observed publicly through the miracles and preaching of the gospel to the poor. The Second part was more difficult because of the political imbued meaning of the Messiah at the time.

How did John not see Jesus as the Messiah? John was expecting and wanted the Messiah to fulfill his understanding and expectation.  One of the lessons from the life of John the Baptist is for us to strive to know God through His word. Then you will recognize the God of the Bible rather than the God of the prevailing culture. Seek God. Know God. Trust God.
