    I don’t know.  In my opinion, Ken kinda flubs the Mark 1:2-3 interpretation – he has Jesus preparing the way in the wilderness.  I just don’t see how you can hold to that in light of the very next passage introducing John as coming from the “wilderness” and proclaiming one who will “follow”. Sounds an awful lot like someone fulfilling the way preparation role to me.

    I’m hoping this doesn’t color my reception of his series.
