John 1: He will take away the sins of the world! 

john-1-29-1-450x450

29 The very next day John saw Jesus coming to him to be baptised, and John cried out, “Look! There he is—God’s Lamb! He will take away the sins of the world! 30 I told you that a Mighty One would come who is far greater than I am, because he existed long before I was born! 31 My baptism was for the preparation of his appearing to Israel, even though I’ve yet to experience him.”

32 Then, as John baptised Jesus he spoke these words: “I see the Spirit of God appear like a dove descending from the heavenly realm and landing upon him—and it rested upon him from that moment forward!33 And even though I’ve yet to experience him, when I was commissioned to baptise with water God spoke these words to me, ‘One day you will see the Spirit descend and remain upon a man. He will be the One I have sent to baptise with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 And now I have seen with discernment. I can tell you for sure that this man is the Son of God.”

John 1:29-34, the Passion translation.
