John the Baptist Prepares the Way

1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, 1the Son of God.a 2 2As it is written in Isaiah the prophet,b3"Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way, 3 4the voice of one crying in the wilderness: 5'Preparec the way of the Lord, make his paths straight,'" 4 6John appeared, baptizing in 7the wilderness and proclaiming 8a baptism of 9repentance 10for the forgiveness of sins. 5 And all the country of Judea and all Jerusalem were going out to him and were being baptized by him in the river Jordan, 11confessing their sins. 6 Now John was 12clothed with camel's hair and 13wore a leather belt around his waist and ate 14locusts and 15wild honey. 7 And he preached, saying, 16"After me comes he who is mightier than I, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. 8 17I have baptized you with water, but 18he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
