Matthew 3:1-4 – Saint John the Baptist

& Christian Monasticism

Matthew 3:1-4:

1 In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea 

2 and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”

3 This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah:
“A voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
make straight paths for him.’ ”(Isaiah 40:3)

4 John’s clothes were made of camel’s hair, and he had a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey.
