Bible: Matthew 11:9-14

11:9 What did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more 1  than a prophet. 11:10 This is the one about whom it is written:

Look, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, 2 

who will prepare your way before you. 3 

11:11I tell you the truth, 4  among those born of women, no one has arisen greater than John the Baptist. Yet the one who is least 5  in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he is. 11:12 From 6  the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and forceful people lay hold of it. 7  11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John appeared. 8  11:14 And if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah, who is to come.
