John the Baptist

In the Gospels, before people knew who Jesus was there was a man that came along
and warned people that Jesus was coming and that everyone should be good
or else they'd be in trouble when Jesus showed up!

That man's name was John, and because he was baptizing people for God,
they call him John the Baptist.

When Jesus came to meet John, he asked to be baptized.
John baptized him, and the bible says that heaven opened up
and the Spirit of God descended upon Jesus like a dove.

John's mother was Elizabeth, and Elizabeth was also related to Jesus mother Mary.
