Luke 7:18

And the disciples of John told him (kai aphggeilan Iwanh oi maqhtai autou). Literally, and his disciples announced to John. Such news (verse Luke 17 ) was bound to come to the ears of the Baptist languishing in the dungeon of Machaerus ( Luke 3:20 ). Luke 7:18-35 runs parallel with Matthew 11:2-19 , a specimen of Q, the non-Marcan portion of Matthew and Luke.
