In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea
Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came upon John the son of Zachariah in the wilderness.
And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim because there was much water there, and they came and were baptized.
that word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached,
John, having first proclaimed before his coming, the baptism of repentance to all the people of Israel.
And he said unto them, Into what then were ye baptized? And they said, Into John's baptism.
And now why tarriest thou? Arise and be baptized and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
