THE PREACHING OF JOHN THE BAPPY (BAPTIST)
Category: COCKNEY BIBLE
This is the Good News about Jesus Christ, God's currant. It all started off just like that prophet geezer, Isaiah, wrote: God said: I will send my messenger ahead of you to clear the frog for you. Some bloke is shouting, making all kinds of girls-and-boys in the desert. Get the frog ready for the Lord; you gotta make a straight old path for him to travel!
So, John the Bappy turned up in the desert, with his north wide open, preaching away and baptizing all sorts of people. Listen, folks, stop upsetting God. Stop sinning. Come and be baptized, he told everyone. And then God will forgive your sins.
Quite a few folk came from the area of Judea and the city of Jerusalem to hear what old John the Bappy had to say. They said they were sorry for their sins, and he baptized them in the River Jordan. John's these-and-those were made of camel's barnet, and 'e 'ad a leather belt round his waist and, would you Adam and Eve it, he used to eat bloomin' locusts and wild honey. He told all the people, The geezer who's coming after me is a better man than me. I'm not even good enough to untie his canoes. I've been baptizing you with the fisherman's, but the geezer who's coming will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.
