Matthew 3:7-8. You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bear fruit worthy of repentance.
John the Baptist is one of my favorite people in the Bible. I don’t love him just because he is the very definition of eccentricity with his camel’s hair shirt fashions and bug-infested cuisine. I admire him for his courage. He never sucks up to the crowd. It’s a bold speaker who begins by calling his audience a brood of vipers. They don’t teach you to preach that way in seminary, I assure you!
