In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea,
And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.
Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.
But John forbad him, saying , I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison , he departed into Galilee;
And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.
Then came to him the disciples of John, saying , Why do we and the Pharisees fast oft, but thy disciples fast not?
Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples,
Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see :
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?
Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence , and the violent take it by force .
For John came neither eating nor drinking , and they say , He hath a devil.
And said unto his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead; and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.
For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife.
For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.
And she, being before instructed of her mother, said , Give me here John Baptist's head in a charger.
And he sent , and beheaded John in the prison.
And they said , Some say that thou art John the Baptist : some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets.
And after six days Jesus taketh Peter , James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart ,
Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
The baptism of John, whence was it ? from heaven, or of men? And they reasoned with themselves, saying , If we shall say , From heaven; he will say unto us, Why did ye not then believe him?
But if we shall say , Of men; we fear the people; for all hold John as a prophet.
For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.
