John brought the children of Yisrael through the baptism of the Jordan River to hear the very words of God spoken from Yeshua at Mt. Zion.
And just like Moses who prepared the way for the promised land, but did not enter. So too, John prepared the way for the new covenant, but did not enter along with the rest. Both brought God’s children to the Jordan to enter into the promise. And both did not enter the kingdom like the rest, but died at its gates as the Lord was establishing it. The rest received and established the kingdom, then died.
Just like Moses consecrated the children of Yisrael at the foot of Mt. Sinai before the giving of the Torah.
Yeshua consecrated the disciples at the foot of Mt. Zion before the giving of God’s Words (John 13-14)
John 14:10 The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe on account of the works themselves.
After God gave the Torah to Moses, Moses broke them and had to go back up the mountain another 40 days before it was brought back to the people.
After God gave the Torah through Yeshua, He broke Him, and the children of Yisrael had to wait 50 days till the Spirit came back down and indwelt the people.
There are many many more than this. These are just a start.
