Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked, &c. to the end.

Sect. 13. The history of Christ's private life. And the child grew and waxed strong in spirit, &c. to the end.

Sect. 14. The mission, character, preaching, &c. of

The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ the Son of God, was, as it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Luke Now, in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiperius Cesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and Frachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abiene, Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.

As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, and make his paths straight.

8 John He was not that light, but was sent to bear wit-

ness of that light, that (or rather which) was.
the true light, which lighteth every man that
cometh into the world. He was in the world,
and the world was made by him, and the world
knew him not. He came unto his own, and
his own received him not. But as many as re-
ceived him, to them gave he power to become
the sons of God, even to them that believe on
his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor
of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man,
but of God. And the Word was made flesh, i. e.
became man, and dwelt among us, and we be-
held his glory, the glory as of the only begot-
ten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Mat. And the same John had his raiment of camels
hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and
his meat was locusts and wild honey.

Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all '
Judea, and all the region round about Jor-
dan, and were baptized of him in Jordan,
confessing their sins.

And there went out unto him all the land of Judea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins.

And John was clothed with camels hair, and with a girdle of skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey.
