1 The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God.2 It is written in the prophet Isaiah: Look, I am going to send my messenger in front of you to prepare your way before you.3 A voice of one that cries in the desert: Prepare a way for the Lord, make his paths straight.4 John the Baptist was in the desert, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.

5 All Judaea and all the people of Jerusalem made their way to him, and as they were baptised by him in the river Jordan they confessed their sins.6 John wore a garment of camel-skin, and he lived on locusts and wild honey.7 In the course of his preaching he said, ‘After me is coming someone who is more powerful than me, and I am not fit to kneel down and undo the strap of his sandals.8 I have baptised you with water, but he will baptise you with the Holy Spirit.’
