behold

John realized he was seeing what no other eye could see. This was the sign of the Messiah.

John fell silent. His only thought was, “Where landed the lighted dove? Who is out there?”

Murmuring whispers swept across the crowd. Many followed John’s searching gaze.

Spontaneously, John roared,

Behold the Lamb of God!

I am nothing. This man is everything. Look no more to me; look to him. As for me, I am not even worthy to stoop down and unlatch the sandals that are on the feet of this one.”

– excerpt from The Prisoner in The Third Cell by Gene Edwards
