“But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.”
King James Version (KJV)
11:9 More than a prophet - For the prophets only pointed me out afar off; but John was my immediate forerunner.
Mt 11:9 More than a prophet. He was more than a prophet, because he was a reformer, forerunner and way-preparer, as well as prophet. No other prophet ever had so honored an office.
