Bible Quote 1:6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John.
1:7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe.
1:8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
Bible Quote 1:19 Now this was John's testimony when the Jews of Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was.
1:20 He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, "I am not the Christ. "

1:21 They asked him, "Then who are you? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the Prophet?" He answered, "No."
1:22 Finally they said, "Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?"
1:23 John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, "I am the voice of one calling in the desert, 'Make straight the way for the Lord.' "
1:24 Now some Pharisees who had been sent
1:25 questioned him, "Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?"

1:26 "I baptize with water," John replied, "but among you stands one you do not know.
1:27 He is the one who comes after me, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie."
1:28 This all happened at Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
