“And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.”
King James Version (KJV)
11:14 #Mal 4:5|.
Mt 11:14 This is Elijah, who was to come. Malachi predicted that Elijah would come to prepare the way for the Lord. Christ explains that this was fulfilled in John. He was not the literal, but a spiritual Elijah. See Mal 4:5.
