The preaching and baptism of John:

Luke 3:1 Nowe, in the fifteenth yere of ye raigne of Tiberius Cesar, Pontius Pilate being lieftenaut of Iurie, and Herode being tetrarch of Galilee, & his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea, and of the region of ye Trachonites, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abiline, Luke 3:2 When Annas and Caiaphas were the hye priestes, the worde of the Lorde came vnto Iohn, the sonne of Zacharias, in the wyldernesse. Luke 3:3 And he came into all the coastes about Iordane, preachyng the baptisme of repentaunce, for the remission of sinnes: Luke 3:4 As it is writte in ye booke of the wordes of Esaias the prophete, saying: The voyce of a cryer in wyldernesse, prepare ye the way of ye Lorde, make his pathes strayght. Luke 3:5 Euery valley shalbe fylled, and euery mountayne & hyll shalbe brought lowe: And thynges that be croked, shalbe made strayght, and the rough wayes shalbe made playne. Luke 3:6 And all flesshe, shall see the saluation of God. Luke 3:7 Then saide he to the people that were come foorth to be baptized of hym: O generations of vipers, who hath forewarned you to flee from the wrath to come? Luke 3:8 Bryng foorth therefore due fruites of repentaunce, and begyn not to say within your selues, we haue Abraham to our father: For I saye vnto you, that God is able of these stones, to rayse vp childre vnto Abraham. Luke 3:9 Nowe also is the axe layed vnto the roote of the trees: Euery tree therfore which bryngeth not foorth good fruite, is hewen downe, and cast into the fire. Luke 3:10 And the people asked hym, saying: What shall we do then? Luke 3:11 He aunswereth, and sayth vnto them: He that hath two coates, let him part with hym that hath none: and he that hath meate, let hym do lykewyse. Luke 3:12 Then came publicanes also to be baptized, and saide vnto him: Maister, what shall we do? Luke 3:13 And he sayde vnto them: Require no more then that which is appoynted vnto you. Luke 3:14 The souldiours lykewyse demaunded of hym, saying: And what shall we do? And he saide vnto them: Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely, and be content with your wages.

his testimony of Christ.

Luke 3:15 As the people wayted, & all men mused in their heartes of Iohn, whether he were very Christe: Luke 3:16 Iohn aunswered, and said vnto them all, In deede I baptize you with water: but one stronger then I commeth, whose shoes latched I am not worthy to vnlose, he shall baptize you with the holy ghost, and with fire. Luke 3:17 Which hath his fanne in his hande, & wyll purge his floore, & wyll gather the wheate into his barne: but ye chaffe wyl burne vp, with fire that neuer shalbe quenched. Luke 3:18 And many other thinges, in his exhortation, preached he vnto the people. Luke 3:19 Then Herode the tetrarch, when he was rebuked of hym for Herodias, his brother Philippes wyfe, and for all the euyls which Herode dyd,

Herod imprisoneth John.

Luke 3:20 Added this aboue all, & shut vp Iohn in pryson.

Christ baptized, receiveth testimony from heaven.

Luke 3:21 Nowe it came to passe, as all the people were baptized, and when Iesus was baptized, and dyd praye, that the heauen was opened, Luke 3:22 And the holy ghost came downe, in a bodyly shape lyke a Doue, vpon hym: and a voyce came from heauen, which sayde, Thou art my beloued sonne, in thee I am well pleased.
