Matthew 24:23

Lo, here is the Christ, or here (idou wde o Cristo h wde). The false prophets ( Matthew 24:11 ) create the trouble and now false Christs (pseudo-Cristoi, verse Matthew 24 ) offer a way out of these troubles. The deluded victims raise the cries of "Lo, here," when these false Messiahs arise with their panaceas for public ills (political, religious, moral, and spiritual).
