Linked by blood and common plan,
Two, these greatest sons of man*,
The first came forth to till the land,
The Word sown next, The Lord’s own hand.
*Jesus and his older cousin, John the Baptist:
“This is the one about whom scripture says: ‘Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, he will prepare your way before you.’
I tell you, among those born of women, no one is greater than John; yet the least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.”
~ Luke 7:27-28
