Jhon was explaining that he was not Christ but the one who came before him in order to prepare others for the come of Christ. When he was ask if he was he denies three times. When I think of this I remember the part where Peter denied Christ three times everything leads up to Jesus death and how long he would be in the grave. Three days and nights and than Jesus would rise again. It is amazing how the number three is used for a number of things in the bible relating to Jesus.
