John the Baptist, “filled with the Holy Ghost from his mother’s womb” (D&C 84:27), was entrusted with the mission of preparing the way for the Savior. His father, Zacharias, prophesied, “And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways; to give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins. … And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel” (Luke 1:76–77, 80).
