From the moment an angel appears to the priest Zechariah in Jerusalem’s Temple to announce that his wife Elizabeth would bear a son, this marks out John for a special purpose.

Through his childhood he is brought up studying the Hebrew scriptures and the prophets’ words about God’s chosen one, his cousin Jesus. On the banks of the river Jordan, his work begins preparing people’s hearts and baptizing them with water. How will the people respond to him? When will he meet his cousin and know if he was right about who Jesus is? 

This is an epic story of great faith and a life dedicated to fulfil God’s purpose.
