1. UJohane waqala ukusakaza ivangeli lombuso wasezulwini iminyaka eyi-7 ngaphambi kokubhabhathizwa kukaJesu. Kubantu, umsebenzi awenza ubonakala ungaphezu kwalowo owenziwa nguJesu, nokho, kwakungenjalo ngempela, wayemane nje engumprofethi kuphela. Akazange asebenze futhi akhulume ethempelini, kunalokho wayekwenza ngaphandle kwemizi nemizana ngaphandle kwalo. Impela yilokho akwenza, phakathi kwesizwe samaJuda, ikakhulu labo ababempofu. Kwakungavamile ngoJohane ukuba axhumane nabantu abasezikhundleni eziphezulu emphakathini, wayesakaza ivangeli kubantu abavamile baseJudiya ukuze alungisele iNkosi uJesu abantu abalungile futhi ayilungisele izindawo ezifanele eyayizosebenza kuzo. Ngenxa yomprofethi ofana noJohane owaphendla indlela, iNkosi uJesu lapho nje ifika yakwazi ukuqala indlela Yayo yesiphambano. Lapho uNkulunkulu eba yinyama ukuze enze umsebenzi Wakhe, akudingekanga ukuba enze umsebenzi wokukhetha abantu futhi akudingekanga ukuba azifunele yena abantu noma indawo ayezosebenzela kuyo. Akenzanga umsebenzi onjalo lapho efika; umuntu olungile wayesemlungisele ngaphambi kokuba afike. … UJohane wasebenza iminyaka eyi-7, okusho ukuthi wasakaza ivangeli iminyaka eyi-7. Phakathi nomsebenzi wakhe, uJohane akazange enze simangaliso eziningi, ngoba umsebenzi wakhe kwakuwukuphendla indlela, kwakuwumsebenzi wokulungisa. Yonke eminye imisebenzi uJesu ayezoyenza yayingahlangene noJohane; uJohane wayemane athi abantu abavume izono, baphenduke bese ebabhabhathiza ukuze basindindiswe. Nakuba ayenza umsebenzi owawumusha futhi avula indlela umuntu ayengakaze ahambe kuyo esikhathini esiphambilini, kodwa yena wayephendlela uJesu kuphela indlela. Wayengumprofethi nje owayenza umsebenzi wokulungisa kodwa engakwazi ukwenza umsebenzi kaJesu. Nakuba uJesu kwakungeyena owokuqala owakhuluma ngevangeli lombuso wezulu, futhi nakuba aqhubeka nendlela eyayiphendlwe uJohane, wayengekho omunye owayengenza umsebenzi Wakhe futhi wawungaphezu komsebenzi kaJohane. UJesu wayengeke akwazi ukuzilungisela indlela Yakhe; umsebenzi Wakhe wayewenzela uNkulunkulu. Kungakhathaliseki ukuthi mingaki iminyaka uJohane ayisebenza, wayesengumprofethi futhi wayeseyilowo owalungisa indlela. Umsebenzi kaJesu owathatha iminyaka emithathu wawumkhulu kunokaJohane owawuyiminyaka eyi-7, ngoba umsebenzi Wakhe wawuhlukile.
