Part Five; John the Baptist and the meeting [Baptism of Jesus]
John the Baptist was a man who went through Galilea Baptising people and asking them to change the ways [There, has been many jokes about him. The typical one is a man standing on the street with a placard saying, “ Repent for the end is nigh”. A much maligned and ridiculed character] Then again John the Baptist, not to mention repent etc, goes on to play an important role in Jesus’s life and teachings.
Not to get ahead of myself, what is crucially missed is the fact that Jesus and John’s Mothers were related?
