John the Baptist was Jesus' cousin on his mother's side, born a few months before Jesus. His ministry was to get people ready for the greatest moment in Jewish history, in world history: Jesus' ministry and then death and resurrection. How does John seek to prepare the people for Jesus' coming (vv. 1-8)?
