Darren Cronshaw takes an exegetical look at the imagery used in John 1:29-34, and concludes that image-rich witnessing can be a "model for spicing our conversation with witness, and for using images that are rich in meaning for those we talk with". Darren offers several examples from the passage: Jesus as the Lamb of God, Jesus as the pre-existent one, Jesus as the baptiser in the Holy Spirit, and Jesus as the Son of God. The article is rich in theology, but also practical in application. After reading the article you will be challenged to be more creative in sharing truths about Christ in any context, Melanesian or otherwise
(from the journal editorial by Doug Hanson).
