211:21 a Mat 11:14 b Ma 18:15Ne bamubuuza nti, “Kale ggwe ani? Ggwe Eriya?”

Yokaana Omubatiza n’addamu nti, “Nedda, si nze ye.”

Ne bongera okumubuuza nti, “Ggwe Nnabbi ayogerwako?”

N’addamu nti, “Nedda.”

22Awo ne bamugamba nti, “Abatutumye tunaabagamba nti, Ggwe ani? Weeyita otya?” 231:23 a Mat 3:1 b Is 40:3N’abaddamu nti,

“Nze ndi ddoboozi ly’oyo ayogerera mu ddoboozi ery’omwanguka ng’asinziira mu ddungu nti,

‘Mutereeze ekkubo lya Mukama mweteekereteekere okujja kwe, nga nnabbi Isaaya bwe yayogera.’ ”

24Abaatumibwa baava eri Abafalisaayo. 25Awo ne babuuza Yokaana nti, “Kale lwaki obatiza, obanga si ggwe Kristo oba Eriya oba nnabbi oli?”

26Yokaana n’addamu nti, “Nze mbatiza na mazzi, naye waliwo ayimiridde wakati mu mmwe gwe mutamanyi, 271:27 nny 15, 30anvaako emabega, nze sisaanira na kusumulula buguwa bwa ngatto ze.” 281:28 Yk 3:26; 10:40Ebyo byali Besaniya, emitala w’omugga Yoludaani, Yokaana Omubatiza gye yabatirizanga.

37Awo abayigirizwa abo ababiri bwe baawulira ekyo ne bagoberera Yesu. 381:38 nny 49; Mat 23:7Yesu bwe yakyuka n’abalaba nga bamugoberera n’ababuuza nti, “Mwagala ki?”

Ne bamuddamu nti, “Labbi” (ekitegeeza nti: “Omuyigiriza”), “obeera wa?”

39N’abaddamu nti, “Mujje mulabeyo.”

Awo ne bagenda naye gye yali abeera, olunaku olwo ne baluzibiza eyo nga bali naye, obudde bwali ng’essaawa kkumi ez’olweggulo okutuusa akawungeezi.

40Omu ku abo ababiri abaawulira Yokaana ng’ayogera ne bagoberera Yesu, yali Andereya, muganda wa Simooni Peetero. 411:41 Yk 4:25Awo Andereya n’agenda anoonya muganda we Simooni n’amugamba nti, “Tulabye Masiya” (amakulu nti Kristo). 421:42 a Lub 17:5, 15 b Mat 16:18Andereya n’atwala Simooni eri Yesu.

Yesu bwe yeetegereza Simooni, n’amugamba nti, “Ggwe Simooni omwana wa Yokaana, kale onooyitibwanga Keefa,” amakulu nti Peetero.

471:47 a Bar 9:4, 6 b Zab 32:2Nassanayiri bwe yali asemberera Yesu, Yesu n’agamba nti, “Laba, Omuyisirayiri wawu ataliimu bukuusa.”

48Nassanayiri kwe kumuddamu nti, “Ontegedde otya?”

Yesu n’amugamba nti, “Firipo bw’abadde tannakutuukako, nkulabye ng’oli wansi w’omutiini.”

491:49 a nny 38; Mat 23:7 b Mat 23:34; 4:3 c Mat 2:2; 27:42; Yk 12:13Nassanayiri n’amuddamu nti, “Labbi, oli Mwana wa Katonda, gwe Kabaka wa Isirayiri!”

50Awo Yesu n’amugamba nti, “Okkiriza kubanga nkugambye nti nkulabye ng’oli wansi w’omutiini? Oliraba n’ebisinga awo obukulu. 511:51 a Mat 3:16 b Lub 28:12 c Mat 8:20Ddala ddala nkugamba nti oliraba eggulu nga libikkuse ne bamalayika ba Katonda nga balinnya era nga bakkira ku Mwana w’Omuntu.”
