“Fad Diet”

Mark 1: 6: “And John was clothed with camel’s hair and wore a leather belt around his waist, and his diet was locusts and wild honey.” This seems like a strange meal plan, until you see that John’s food, like everything about him, was meant as a witness. Locusts were God’s messengers of the need for repentance (Joel 1, 2) - so was John. Wild honey sparked the energy of a long-suffering Jonathan (1 Samuel 14: 27), and was scraped out of a slain lion by that Danite strongman, Samson (Judges 14: 8-9). All these things pointed toward the ministry of John the Baptist. He was, indeed, the beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
