Luke 3

Jack's Bible for 2014 700x400


1 Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,
2 Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.
3 And he came into all the country about Jordan, preaching the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;
4 As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare the way of the Lord, make His paths straight.
5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low;
and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;
6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. [Isaiah 40:3-5]
7 Then said he to the multitude that came out to be baptized of him, O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
8 Therefore bring forth fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say to you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children to Abraham.
9 And now also the axe is laid to the root of the trees: therefore every tree which brings not forth good fruit is cut down, and cast into the fire.
10 And the people asked him, saying, What shall we do then?
11 He answered and said to them, He that has two coats, let him give to him that has none; and he that has food, let him do likewise.
12 Then came also tax collectors to be baptized, and said to him, Master, what shall we do?
13 And he said to them, Exact no more than that which is appointed you.
14 And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said to them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.
15 And as the people were in expectation, and all men wondered in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;
16 John answered, saying to them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I comes, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire:
17 Whose fan is in His hand, and He will throughly purge His floor, and will gather the wheat into His barn; but the chaff He will burn with unquenchable fire.
18 And many other things in his exhortation he preached to the people.
19 But Herod the tetrarch, being reproved by him for Herodias his brother Philip’s wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,
20 Added yet this above all, that he shut up John in prison.
21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,
22 And the Holy Spirit descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven, who said, You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.
