In sports there's an acronym used to describe the greatest of all time. It's the phrase "G.O.A.T." It stands for the GREATEST OF ALL TIME. It is common for fans to argue over who is the greatest of all time in the various sports. But whose the greatest person ever born...the G.O.A.T. when it comes to everyone who has ever lived? Well, in this area there is no debate. Jesus made it clear that John the Baptist was "THE GREATEST," the true G.O.A.T.
