View In My Bible
20 And he confessed and did not deny, but confessed, "1I am not athe Christ." 21 They asked him, "What then? Are you 2Elijah?" And he said, "I am not." "Are you 3the Prophet?" And he answered, "No." 22 Then they said to him, "Who are you, so that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?" 23 He said, "I am 4A VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, 'MAKE STRAIGHT THE WAY OF THE LORD,' as Isaiah the prophet said." 24 Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. 25 They asked him, and said to him, "Why then are you baptizing, if you are not the bChrist, nor Elijah, nor 5the Prophet?" 26 John answered them saying, "6I baptize cin water, but among you stands One whom you do not know. 27 "It is 7He who comes after me, the 8thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie." 28 These things took place in Bethany 9beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. 29 The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, "Behold, 10the Lamb of God who 11takes away the sin of the world! 30 "This is He on behalf of whom I said, '12After me comes a Man who dhas a higher rank than I, 13for He existed before me.'
