in those days John the Baptist * came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, saying,
in the high priesthood of
Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John, the son of Zacharias, in the wilderness.
John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there; and people were coming and were being baptized—
you yourselves know the thing which took place throughout all Judea, starting from Galilee, after the baptism which John proclaimed.
John had proclaimed before His coming a baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.
And he said, “Into what then were you baptized?” And they said, “
Into John’s baptism.”
Now why do you delay?
Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name.’
