In the ministry of John the Baptist, the son of the priest Zechariah, we see the ritual washing (the mikvah) take on a new significance, as a sign of God’s new work of creation. Now the presence of God will not be confined to the temple – the curtain in the temple that separated the Holy of Holies is torn apart – a foretaste of the great event of Jesus death and resurrection.

Recorded at Sacred Heart, Bomaderry. (12’50”)
