Dr. Sproul then goes on to explain the type of back to some and its relationship to the various Levitical washings. The priests and Levites assumed that John was claiming to be Christ but he denied it they then asked him if he was Elijah. John responded he is not and was then asked if he was the prophet and John responded with no. Dr. Sproul concludes with John stating his unworthiness to undo the Messiah's sandal and its meaning.
