John The Baptist’s Clothing

John wore clothing made of camel’s hair,
with a leather belt around his waist,
and he ate locusts and wild honey.
- Mark 1:6 -

In his dress and diet, John the Baptist was distinctive from what was normal for the time.

His dress was durable and serviceable, the clothing of the poorest of the land.

His diet was also common for the poor folk of his time.

He and his disciples lived an ascetic lifestyle.

Despite John's greatness, God kept him a poor man.
