Getting Ready for Jesus

xxx
JOHN THE FORERUNNER

According to the New Testament, John was getting everyone ready for an important person whom he described as greater than himself. This important person was Jesus. Sometimes we commonly refer to John as the forerunner of Jesus, since he was the one who announced Jesus’ coming. We find these words written in the Bible that show that some important person was about to arrive: Behold I shall send my messanger before you. He will prepare your way, prepare the way for the Lord and make his path straight. John the Baptist was the last of the prophets. He was the son of Elizabeth and Zachary. In the Bible there is the story of when John baptised Jesus in the waters of the River Jordan.
