Variant accounts of John the Baptist's message

I've published a new post over at Ragged Glory: Jesus' performance evaluation, part 2: variant accounts.

The topic is still the depiction of John the Baptist in the synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke). In the new post, I explore the difference in John's message as reported by Matthew and Luke, on the one hand, and by Mark, on the other.

This leads to a brief discussion of the "two source" theory.
