1:2 It is written in Isaiah the prophet: "I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way" --
1:3 "a voice of one calling in the desert, 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.' "
1:4 And so John came, baptizing in the desert region and preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
1:5 The whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem went out to him. Confessing their sins, they were baptized by him in the Jordan River.
1:6 John wore clothing made of camel's hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey.
1:7 And this was his message: "After me will come one more powerful than I, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.
1:8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
1:9 At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
1:10 As Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.
1:11 And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."
