Mark's gospel starts with a radical declaration about Jesus Christ. He is the Christ, the Son of God. However, before telling us about Jesus, he talks about John the Baptist, a great preacher in the style of Israel's Old Testament prophets, who is drawing many to hear him and calling on them to re-commit themselves to living for God, through Baptism.
Yet, this great preacher points forward. To someone even greater... Jesus.
