11"Truly I say to you, among those born of women there has not arisen anyone greater than John the Baptist! Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.12"From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force.13"For all the prophets and the Law prophesied until John.
2and said to his servants, "This is John the Baptist; he has risen from the dead, and that is why miraculous powers are at work in him."3For when Herod had John arrested, he bound him and put him in prison because of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip.4For John had been saying to him, "It is not lawful for you to have her."
25"The baptism of John was from what source, from heaven or from men?" And they began reasoning among themselves, saying, "If we say, 'From heaven,' He will say to us, 'Then why did you not believe him?'26"But if we say, 'From men,' we fear the people; for they all regard John as a prophet."
32"For John came to you in the way of righteousness and you did not believe him; but the tax collectors and prostitutes did believe him; and you, seeing this, did not even feel remorse afterward so as to believe him.
