Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist! Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
And they said, “Some say
John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; but still others, Jeremiah, or one of the prophets.”
They told Him, saying, “John the Baptist; and others say Elijah; but others, one of the prophets.”
Many came to Him and were saying, “While John performed no
sign, yet everything John said about this man was true.”
Now when Jesus heard about John, He withdrew from there in a boat to a secluded place by Himself; and when the people heard of this, they followed Him on foot from the cities.
