John the Baptist was the pioneer and forerunner of Christ.

John was the son of Elizabeth and Zechariah. Elisabeth was actually considered infertile because of her old age, but when the Angel Gabriel announced the birth of their son, Zacharias doubted the announcement. He became dump. Only after John was born and Zechariah realized that the proclamation was right, he got back the voice and praised God.

As a young man, John retired to the desert for a simple live. He later came to preach to the population for the coming of the Redeemer. He won the trust of many disciples and baptized many believers in the river Jordan. When Jesus asked to be baptized by him, John announced: "This is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world." His disciples left him to move on with Jesus: his work was done.

King Herod saw the growing popularity of John as a threat. He took John provisionally arrested and later he decided to kill him, although he feared the wrath of his people. At the request of Salome, daughter of Herodias, John was beheaded and his head was handed to her on a tray. His body was buried in Samaria and on the place of his burial, a church was built.
