Fuit homo missus a Deo, cui nomen erat Johannes.
Hic venit in testimonium, ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine,
et pararet Domino plebem perfectam.

Erat Johannes praedicans in deserto baptismum poenitentiae.
Hic venit in testimonium, ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine,
et pararet Domino plebem perfectam.
