** There stands among you, unknown to you, the one who is coming after me…**
This reading is, in the CF Gospel, essentially the same as last week, so as last week, the whole capitum will be referenced. However, for the purpose of the direct representation, relevant excerpts will be shown in the quote.
** XIII. Ubi Iohannes Baptista apparuit in Israhel.**
(Where John the Baptist appeared in Israel.)
Sievers reckoning: 13: 1 - 4
In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Cæsar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and Philip his brother tetrarch of Iturea and the country of Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilina: Under the high priests Anna and Caiphas: the word of the Lord was made unto John, the son of Zachary, in the desert.
And he came into all the country about the Jordan, preaching the baptism of penance for the remission of sins. Saying: Do penance: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
For this is he that was spoken of by Isaias the prophet, saying:
A voice of one crying in the desert,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
make straight his paths.
Every valley shall be filled
and every mountain
and hill shall be brought low:
and the crooked
shall be made straight,
and the rough ways plain.
And all flesh shall see
the salvation of God.
This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him. He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light. That was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world.
Sievers reckoning: 13: 19 - 25
And as the people were of opinion, and all were thinking in their hearts of John, that perhaps he might be the Christ: the Judeans sent from Jerusalem priests and Levites to him, to ask him: Who art thou? And he confessed and did not deny: and he confessed: I am not the Christ.
And they asked him:
What then? Art thou Elias?
And he said: I am not.
Art thou the prophet?
And he answered: No.
They said therefore unto him: Who art thou, that we may give an answer to them that sent us? What sayest thou of thyself? He said: I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaias. And they that were sent were of the Pharisees.
And they asked him and said to him: Why then dost thou baptise, if thou be not Christ, nor Elias, nor the prophet?
John answered them, saying: I indeed baptise you in water unto penance, but he that shall come after me, is mightier than me, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: one in the midst of you, whom you know not, he shall baptise you in the Holy Ghost and fire.
Whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly cleanse his floor and gather his wheat into the barn; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.
And many other things exhorting did he preach to the people. These things were done in Bethania, beyond the Jordan, where John was baptising.
