4 As they departed, Jesus began to say to the multitudes concerning John: "What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? "But what did you go out to see? A man clothed in soft garments? Indeed, those who wear soft [clothing] are in kings' houses. "But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and more than a prophet. (Mat 11: 7- 9) St. John the Baptist The Hermit

5 "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight' “(Mar 1: 3) As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying: "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight.

7 "For this is [he] of whom it is written: 'Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You' (Mat 11 : 10) "I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water" (Joh 1 : 31) St. John the Baptist The Forerunner

8 "He was the burning and shining lamp, and you were willing for a time to rejoice in his light. (Joh 5 : 35) The Value of The Priest St. John the Baptist The Priest, The Son of The Priest And John [tried to] prevent Him, saying, "I need to be baptized by You, and are You coming to me?"

9 In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, and saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!"(Mat 3 : 1 - 2) "And even now the ax is laid to the root of the trees. Therefore every tree which does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire (Mat 3 : 10) St. John the Baptist The Preacher

12 "They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying: 'We played the flute for you, And you did not dance; We mourned to you, And you did not weep'."For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon'(Luk 7: ) Then they said to Him, "Why do the disciples of John fast often and make prayers, and likewise those of the Pharisees, but Yours eat and drink?" (Luk 5 : 33) St. John the Baptist The Teacher

13 For John had said to Herod, "It is not lawful for you to have your brother's wife" (Mar 6 : 18) for Herod feared John, knowing that he [was] a just and holy man, and he protected him. And when he heard him, he did many things, and heard him gladly (Mar 6 : 20) St. John the Baptist The Teacher
