Title:John the Baptist's Warning about the impending judgment
Notes:From Daniel 4:14-15a -- "He called in a loud voice: 'Cut down the tree and trim of its branches; strip off its leaves and scatter its fruit. Let the animals flee from under it and the birds from its branches. Yet leave the stump with its roots in the ground, But with a band of iron and bronze around it In the new grass of the field..."
