Jan 20  The crowd asked, “What shall we do?”

John answered, “Share your clothing and food with those who are needy.”

Tax collectors5 coming for baptism asked, “Master, what shall we do?” “Collect only what you should.” John answered.

Soldiers also asked, “What shall we do?” He replied,  “Dont intimidate or blackmail. Be content with your wages,”

Many people pondered expectantly if John might be the Christ. John answered them, “I baptize you with water, but One6 greater than I is coming, whose sandals Im unworthy to loosen. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand to thresh and store the wheat in his barn, and burn the chaff with unquenchable fire.” He taught and preached, among other things, the good news as well.
