John the baptist told people to ask for forgiveness for things they have done wrong. He told them to prayer to the lord and love and respect him.
He didn't have a home, sometimes he had to sleep outside. He thought all he needed was the lord.
John baptised people in the Jordan river.
One day jesus came by and asked john to baptise him.
John said to jesus ''You should be baptizing me. I cannot baptize you Lord.'' Jesus replied ''It's important that I do this now. I am ready and I want to be an example to others and show then that it's important''. So John Baptized him.
John laid him down in the river and then pulled him back up again . Just then the sky opened and the holy spirit came like a white dove, and landed on Jesus shoulder. Then a voice from heaven said, ''This is my son, I love him and I am pleased with him.''
