Imagine you had gone to John for Baptism.

How might you have viewed John?

What would you have told the neighbours when you got home?

How might John have felt about his special role and responsibility?

Did he fit in with the crowd or was he different from them? Think of his clothes and the things he ate.

How do we react when we are in close contact with people who are different?



Write an account of John’s arrival at the River Jordan from John’s point of view and the reaction of the people at that time.
