John the Baptist was known as the forerunner.  He was  born of Elizabeth and Zechariah in fulfillment of the prophecy from the Archangel Gabriel.

John the Baptist “was not the light, but came as a witness to the light, so that through him everyone might believe.”  He is known as a prophet and “a voice crying out in the wilderness”.
