John the Baptist

Mark 1, 1-8

THIS IS THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT JESUS. HE IS THE SON OF GOD.

LONG TIME AGO THERE WAS A PROPHET CALLED ISAIAH. IN HIS BOOK IT IS WRITTEN, THAT ONE DAY A MAN WILL COME. THIS MAN WILL PREPARE AND CLEAR THE WAY.

IN THE DESERT IST A MAN. HE IS CALLED JOHN THE BAPTIST. HE TALKS TO MANY PEOPLE. THEY ARE LISTENING TO HIM. HE SAYS: "YOU HAVE MANY SINS. YOU DID MANY WRONG THINGS. STOP THIS AND CHANGE! GOD CAN CHANGE YOU!"

MANY PEOPLE FROM JUDEA AND JERUSALEM COME TO JOHN.THE PEOPLE GET BAPTIZED WITH WATER. THEY KNOW: "I AM A SINNER! BUT GOD CAN CHANGE ME AND HE FORGIVES ME!" THE BAPTISM IS A SIGN FOR THAT.

JOHN WEARS CLOTHES MADE FROM CAMEL'S HAIR. HE EATS LOCUSTS AND WILD HONEY.

JOHN SAYS: "THERE IS A MAN COMING LATER WHO IS GREATER THAN I AM. I WILL KNEEL DOWN BEFORE HIM."

JOHN BAPTIZED THE PEOPLE WITH WATER. BUT THIS MAN WILL BAPTIZE THEM WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT.
