John the Baptist (not) in the Apostolic Fathers

Brian Le Port decided to take a look and see what the Apostolic Fathers have to say about John the Baptist. He discovered that it is next to nothing. That is very interesting, don’t you think? Any thoughts on why that might be the case?

I have an idea for a book about John the Baptist, and so I am very interested in exploring this topic and hearing what your thoughts are on it!
