John was called a prophet of the Most High; for he went on before the Lord to prepare the way for Him, and to give His people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins—because of the tender mercy of our God, with which the Sunrise from on high came from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death—to guide their feet into the path of peace.  (Luke 1:76-79)
