Then Came John

John the Baptizer. The first prophet on the scene in 400 years. Four Hundred years without a fresh Word from GOD.  Then came John.

In his camel-hair clothing and with a weird diet. But he had a Word and the people came from all over to hear.

At that time Jerusalem was going out to him, and all Judea and all the district around the Jordan;  source

Matthew 3

They were dry and hungry. A famine of The Word had made them ready.

And what was the Word from The LORD? Was it how kind and patient they had been to wait so long? Was it a message to validate their feelings and tell them how marvelous they were?
No.
The Word was REPENT. And they did!

and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, as they confessed their sins. source

Whatcha make of that?
