|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
30 "Here he is, God's Passover Lamb! He forgives the sins of the world! This is the man I've been talking about, 'the One who comes after me but is really ahead of me.'
30 This is the one I meant when I said, 'A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.'
