John the Baptist

Matthew 3

All four of the Gospels mention John the Baptist. He is portrayed as a holy man who lives in the desert, warning that the messiah is coming, and that people had better get ready. John is no shrinking daisy - he takes strips off local officials and priests, and even criticizes Herod, the local king. This will ultimately lead to his death. But before this occurs, he is present to baptize Jesus in the Jordan River.

The paintings on this page deal only with John on his own. For paintings of Jesus being baptized, click below.

"3 In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, 2 and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” 3 For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying:

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord;
make His paths straight.’ ”

4 This same John had clothing made of camel’s hair, a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then Jerusalem, and all Judea, and all the region around the Jordan went out to him, 6 and were baptized by him in the Jordan, confessing their sins.”

Gospel of Matthew 3:3-6
