Luke 7:24-28 HCSB
After John’s messengers left, He began to speak to the crowds about John: “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed swaying in the wind? What then did you go out to see? A man dressed in soft robes? Look, those who are splendidly dressed and live in luxury are in royal palaces. What then did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and far more than a prophet. This is the one it is written about:
Look, I am sending My messenger
ahead of You;
he will prepare Your way before You.
I tell you, among those born of women no one is greater than John, but the least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.”
