“I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. …

“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but my me” (John 6:35; John 8:12; John 11:25; John 14:6).

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).
