How was John the Baptist similar to Jesus?

Asked 3 years ago

Both John the Baptist and Jesus were preachers, but there seems to be more to it in the Bible stories than that. Who was John the Baptist to Jesus?

Several factors link John the Baptist and Jesus:

  • They were relatives.
  • Both had miraculous births (John's mother, Elizabeth was past child-bearing age, and Mary was a young virgin).
  • Both were prophesized by Malachi and their births were foretold by angels.
  • Both were preachers of repentance.
  • Both had disciples.
  • Both were ultimately arrested and put to death.
