The Story of Jesus, My Best Friend, Book Three: Early Ministry of Jesus for children

first introduced to Jesus’ cousin John who has been preparing the people for the coming of
Jesus through his preaching and his baptizing in the River Jordan. Many believe John is the
Son of God, because John is so holy and convincing in his message that people should repent
and change their lives in preparation for the Savior‘s coming. John explains that he is NOT
the promised Savior, but only the forerunner, the humble preparer for the great Messiah’s
