New Testament: Mark 1.6
To read the Bible in a year, read Mark 1.1–22 on February 16, In the year of our Lord Christ 2022
By Don Ruhl
The Bible rarely gives us a glimpse of the clothing and eating habits of biblical characters, but it did of John the Baptizer:
Now John was clothed with camel’s hair and with a leather belt around his waist, and he ate locusts and wild honey.
– Mark 1.6
John’s clothing made him reminiscent of Elijah (2 Kings 1.8), of whom John was a type (Malachi 4.5–6; Luke 1.16–17). John appeared to be a tough character and his preaching came across that way, but he sought to turn people to the Lord and to prepare them to receive him into their hearts.
- What kind of man do you want preaching to you?
- Would you have listened to John preach if you lived back then?
