Jan 23 John said, I baptize with water, but One stands unknown among you. He is the coming One,1 whose sandals Im unfit to loosen.

This happened in Bethany beyond Jordan where John was baptizing.

The next day John saw Jesus approaching and said, See, Gods Lamb2 who takes away the worlds sin!   I meant him when I said, One greater than I is coming, who existed before me. I didnt know him, but I came baptizing with water to reveal him to Israel. John witnessed, I saw3 the Spirit descend from heaven as a dove and rest on him. I didnt know him, but the One who sent me to baptize said, The One on whom the Spirit descends and remains is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit. This I saw and I testify that he is the Son of God.
