Matthew 11

Matthew 11:

John: More than a Prophet 

                Jesus departs to go and teach His gospel throughout the surrounding cities. John the Baptist, who is now in prison, hears of Jesus and sends his disciples to learn of him. The disciples of John reach Jesus and ask Him if He is the one that was spoken of in ancient times. Jesus tells them that He is the one and to relay a message back to John; “For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there’re hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist…” (Matthew 11:11)

                Jesus tells the multitudes that all shall come unto him; “…all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
