|The Good News According to Luke
The word of God came to John in the wilderness in the fifteenth year
of the rule of the Emperor Tiberius, when the Governor of Judea was
Pontius Pilate, Herod was Tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip was
Tetrarch of Iturea and Trachonitis, Lysanias was Tetrarch of Abilene, and
during the priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas. He went into all of the
region around the Jordan River, calling for baptism and repentance from
which forgiveness of sins comes.
Lots of people came along to be baptised by John.
John told the people all sorts of good news. He took Herod the
Tetrarch to task in the matter of his marriage to Herodias and for the
many other evils he had done. Herod capped all his other crimes by putting
John into prison.
After all the people had been baptised, Jesus was also baptised.
Jesus was about 30 years old when he began his work. He was known as
the son of Joseph.
