Mark 1:1-8

Take Me to the River

The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written in the prophet Isaiah,

"See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you,
who will prepare your way;
the voice of one crying out in the wilderness:
`Prepare the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight,'"

John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And people from the whole Judean countryside and all the people of Jerusalem were going out to him, and were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John was clothed with camel's hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey.[...]

Cartoon Cool Stuff

For Mark the beginning of the good news of Jesus starts at his baptism by John the Baptist.
John serves to prepare the way for Jesus - sort of the herald of things to come. Of course,
we think John might have had some unusual requests along the way, although the probably
were not debating the proper way to baptize (e.g. immersion vs. sprinkling).
