"What then did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet.
This is the one about whom it is written, 'See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, who
will prepare your way before you.' Truly I tell you, among those born of women no one has
arisen greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of heaven is
greater than he." (Matthew 11:9-11).
