December 2: John the Baptist, Matthew 3.1-12

December 2: John the Baptist,
Matthew 3.1 – 12

John the Baptist was an unlikely and outcast figure, yet it was he who foretold of Jesus’ coming, and encouraged the community to live differently.

“On Jordan’s bank, the Baptist’s cry announces that the Lord is nigh…prepare we in our hearts a home where such a mighty guest may come,”

On Jordan’s bank, the Baptist’s Cry was written by Charles Coffin, 1736 and translated a hundred years later by John Chandler
