As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; and all flesh shall see the salvation of God."
Trinitarians claim that John the Baptist came to prepare the way for YAHWEH which means Jesus is YAHWEH.
Examination of the Claim
1. Luke 1:76-79
And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways, to give knowledge of salvation to his people in the forgiveness of their sins, through the tender mercy of our God, when the day shall dawn upon us from on high to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace."
2. Luke 1:68-75
3. Luke 4:18-19
4. God's Messiah, God's Savior
5. Jesus Came in the Name of His Father
