Preaching of John the Baptist
- 'This is the Good News about Jesus Christ, the Son of God.' It began as the prophet Isaiah had written: "God said, 'I will send my messenger ahead of you to clear the way for you.'
- Someone is shouting in the desert, 'Get the road ready for the Lord; make a straight path for him to travel!'
- John appeared in the desert, baptizing and preaching. ' turn away from your sins and be baptized, and God will forgive your sins.'
- People confessed their sins, and he baptized them in the river Jordan.
- John wore clothes made of camel's hair, with a leather belt round his waist, and ate locusts and wild honey.
- He announced to the people, 'the man who will come after me is much greater than I am. I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.
