Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?"
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
And they came to John and said to him, "Rabbi, he who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have testified behold, he is baptizing, and all are going to him."
Before his coming John had preached a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.
