John the Baptist Calls for Repentance (Luke 3:1-14)
John the Baptist, the son of Zacharias, was a prophet of God. He was sent to prepare the way for the messiah. He lived more of his life in the wilderness of Judea, and Jordan, where he preached baptism, and repentance for the remission of sin.
He preached in the spirit of Isaiah;
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness
Prepare the way of the Lord:
Make His paths straight.
Every valley shall be filed
And every mountain and hill brought low;
The crooked places shall be made straight
And the rough ways smooth;
And all flesh shall see the salvation of God”.
Many that heard believed, repented, and were baptized.
