Matthew 3 CSB
John the Baptist announces good news
In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea and saying,
“Repent, because the kingdom of heaven has come near!”
For he is the one spoken of through the prophet Isaiah, who said:
A voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
Prepare the way for the Lord;
make his paths straight!
