Matthew 3:1; Matthew 3:3; Matthew 4:1; Matthew 11:7; Matthew 14:13; Matthew 14:15; Matthew 24:26
In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying , The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
And as they departed , Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see ? A reed shaken with the wind?
When Jesus heard of it, he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart : and when the people had heard thereof, they followed him on foot out of the cities.
And when it was evening, his disciples came to him, saying , This is a desert place, and the time is now past ; send the multitude away , that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals.
Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold , he is in the desert; go not forth : behold , he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
