A Question From John The Baptist

10 This is the man of whom the Scripture says, " 'Here I send my messenger on before you; He will prepare the road ahead of you.' 11  "I tell you, among men born of women no one greater than John the Baptist has ever appeared. And yet those who are of little importance in the Kingdom of Heaven are greater than he. 12 But from the time of John the Baptist until now men have been taking the Kingdom of Heaven by storm and impetuously crowding into it.
