|John 1:27-31 |
27 It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal's strap I am not worthy to unloose."
28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
29 The next day John saw Jesus coming to him, and said, "Look, there is the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world.
30 This is he of whom I said, 'after me comes a man who is preferred before me, for he was before me.'
31 And I did not know him, except that he should be revealed to Israel; for this reason I have come baptizing with water."
