In the fif­teenth year of the reign of Tiberius Cae­sar, when Pon­tius Pi­late was gover­nor of Judea, and Herod was tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the re­gion of Itu­raea and Tra­choni­tis, and Lysa­nias was tetrarch of Abi­lene, dur­ing the high priest­hood of An­nas and Ca­iaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the desert. John went through­out the whole re­gion of the Jor­dan, pro­claim­ing a bap­tism of re­pen­tance for the for­give­ness of sins, as it is writ­ten in the book of the words of the prophet Isa­iah: A voice of one cry­ing out in the desert: “Pre­pare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths. Ev­ery val­ley shall be filled and ev­ery moun­tain and hill shall be made low. The wind­ing roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth, and all flesh shall see the sal­va­tion of God.” (Luke 3:1-6)
