John the Baptist Fulfills the Malachi Prophecy

1:01 A 'beginning' of the 'good-news' of Jesus Christ, ...
  (the) Son of God.
1:02 As it has been written in Isaiah the Prophet, ...
  "Behold, I send my messenger off before your face, ..."
  "who will build down 'the way' of you."
  "Behold, I send my messenger off before your face, who will build down 'the way' of you."
1:03 A voice shouting in the wilderness, ...
  Prepare 'the way' of a Lord! ... "Make his paths straight!"
1:04 John became the one baptizing in the wilderness, ...
  and preaching a baptism of repentance into a forgiveness of sins.
1:05 And the entire Judean region and all the Jerusalemites were going out to him, ...
  and they were baptized by him in the Jordan River confessing their sins.
1:06 And John was clothed in 'camel hairs' and a 'leather girdle' around his waist.
  And (he was) eating 'locusts' and 'honey of the field.'
1:07 And he was preaching saying, ... "One is coming after me, stronger than me, of whom I am not worthy, stooping, to untie the thong of his sandals."
1:08 "I baptized you in water, ..."
  "but he will baptize you in a Holy Spirit."
