John 1:6-9, 19-28

The verses from the Prologue of the Gospel of John set the stage for John the Baptist’s role as the one who prepares the way. The Prologue is followed by three questions posed to John about his identity. He does not tell them who he is but who he is not and goes on to announce that there is one coming far greater than he.

There are times when I understand what John meant about being a “voice crying in the wilderness.” I pray that my voice is loud enough to be heard in this noisy world.
