The First Followers of Jesus 
John was still busy preaching and baptising, and when he saw Jesus, returning from the wilderness, he pointed him out to the crowds. 
There! You see that man over there – you’re looking at the Lamb of God – the sacrifice who will take away the sins of the world once and for all. When I baptised him I saw heaven open and God’s Holy Spirit descend upon him. This is no ordinary man – I am baptising people with simple, cold water – he will baptise you with the complex firre of God. This man is greater than I will ever be – because although he appears after me – in reality he was before me. 
The people demanded to know if John himself was the Messiah they had been waiting for, but he told them plainly: 
I am simply the one to point the way. I am a signpost in the wilderness, that’s all.
