The Story of John the Baptist

God's Story: John the Baptist

Characters Protrayed

In Matthew’s scripture, John the Baptist is portrayed as a simple man who wore clothes made of camel's hair and ate locusts and wild honey. He spent some time living in the wilderness.


Luke talks about more historical facts of the time rather than how John is portrayed as a person but did mention that John the Baptist spent some time in the wilderness.
