The gospel reading for Epiphany 2 in Year A is John 1.29–42. In it, John the Baptist testifies to Jesus, but the account both assumes that we know the story already, yet also functions as part of the prologue to the gospel, introducing many of the key themes.
James and Ian reflect on these issues, and the implications for the way we read and preach on this passage.
