1:19 Now 1  this was 2  John’s 3  testimony 4  when the Jewish leaders 5  sent 6  priests and Levites from Jerusalem 7  to ask him, “Who are you? 8  1:20 He confessed – he did not deny but confessed – “I am not the Christ! 9  1:21 So they asked him, “Then who are you? 10  Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not!” 11  “Are you the Prophet?” 12  He answered, “No! 1:22 Then they said to him, “Who are you? Tell us 13  so that we can give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?

1:23 John 14  said, “I am the voice of one shouting in the wilderness, ‘Make straight 15  the way for the Lord,’ 16  as Isaiah the prophet said.” 1:24 (Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. 17 ) 18
