Now when John heard in prison of the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples to ask Him, Art thou He who was to come, or are we to expect another? And Jesus said to them in answer, Go and tell John the things which ye hear and see: read more.
the blind are restored to sight, and the lame walk; the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear; the dead are raised to life, and the poor have the gospel preached to them: and happy is the man who shall not be offended at any thing in me. And as they departed, Jesus took occasion to say to the people concerning John, What went ye out into the desert to see? a reed shaken by the wind? But what went ye out to see? a man clad in fine attire? they that wear rich clothes are in the palaces of kings. But what did ye indeed go out to see? a prophet? Yes, verily, and one superior to a prophet. For this is he, of whom it is written, "Behold I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee." For I assure you that in the whole human race there hath not risen a greater than John the baptist: though the lest in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he: and from the days of John the baptist to this time, the kingdom of heaven is as it were forced into, and the most pressing seize upon it with eagerness. For all the prophets, and the law, did no more than prophesy, till John came: and, if ye are willing to receive the truth, This is that Elias who was to come. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. But to what shall I compare this generation? they are like children sitting in the market-places, and calling to their companions, and saying "We have sung and ye have not danced; we have mourned, and ye have not lamented:" for John came neither eating nor drinking as others do, and they say, He is beside himself: the Son of man came eating and drinking like other men, and they call Him a gluttonous man, and a wine-bibber, and a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified by her children.

And the disciples of John told him of all these things: so John called two of his disciples to him, and sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou He that was to come, or are we to expect another? And the men came to Him, and said, John the baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou He that was to come, or are we to expect another? read more.
(Now at that very time He cured many of their diseases and plagues, and of evil spirits, and gave sight to many that were blind.) And Jesus answering said unto them, Go and tell John what ye have seen and heard: that the blind recover sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel preached to them, and happy is he who shall not be offended at any thing in me. When the messengers of John were departed, He began to speak unto the people concerning John, what went ye out into the wilderness to see? a reed shaken by the wind? but what did ye go out to see? a man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that are dressed in fine clothes and live delicately, are in palaces, not in deserts: but what went ye out to see? a prophet? yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet. This is he of whom it is written, "Behold I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee:" for I tell you that among the sons of men there is not a greater prophet than John the baptist: (though the least in the kingdom of God is greater than he:) ---and all the people that heard him, even the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John; but the pharisees indeed and the lawyers rejected the counsel of God within themselves, and were not baptized by him.--- Whereunto therefore shall I compare the men of this generation? and to what are they like? they are like children sitting in the market-place, and calling to one another, and saying, "We have played pleasant tunes to you, and ye have not danced; we have sung mournful ones and ye have not wept:" for John the baptist came neither eating bread, nor drinking wine, and ye say, he hath a demon: the Son of man is come eating and drinking like other men, and ye call Him a gluttonous man and a wine bibber, and a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified by all her children.

Now in those days came John the baptist preaching in the desert part of Judea, and saying, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand: for this is He who was spoken of by Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the desert, "Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight."

And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent from Jerusalem priests and Levites to ask him, Who art thou? he confessed, and denied not; but declared openly, I am not the Christ. And they asked him, What then? art thou Elias? And he said, I am not. Art thou a prophet? and he answered, No. read more.
