    I've seen on here a pastor that said John the Baptist baptized using the name of Jesus. John didn't use that or any name he baptized using only the words, "for the remission of sins". Jesus' name wasn't revealed for baptism until Acts 2:38.

    Maipelo: He's poor. He wears what is easiest to come by. The food he ate was his choice. The honey made eating locusts a lot easier, something you could swallow! He ate and dressed the same all the way to death.
