11:6 Happy is he who shall not be offended at me - Notwithstanding all these proofs that I am the Messiah.
Mt 11:6 Blessed is [he], etc. This is suggested by John's seeming to have stumbled, not fallen, because Christ had not publicly declared his mission. The Lord does not upbraid, but gives in this way a tender rebuke, implying that he knew what to do with reference to his kingdom.

I wonder if by offended he means embarrassed in public for sharing the gospel

This verse is one that I' like to share with the Muslim community so that they may allow themselves to learn more and get to know the real Jesus.
