|NASB||Matthew 11:9 "But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and one who is more than a prophet.|
|Matthew 11:9 "But what did you [really] go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and one [more eminent, more remarkable, and] far more than a prophet [who foretells the future].|
|Bible Question (short): prophet, Prophet, or One who is more...|
Question (full): Luke 2:76 talks about John the baptist thus, "And you, child will be called the prophet of the Most High".
In John 1:21 the baptist denied that he was the Prophet.
My question then is for Matthew 11:9. What did the people expect to see in the wilderness. Who were they looking for?
Were they looking for a prophet or a Prophet? Who was the Expected One? Was indeed this One, "One who is more than a Prophet."
Would anyone like to agree with my interpretation? Matthew 11:9, "But why did you go out? To see a Prophet? Yes, I say to you, and One who is more than a Prophet. This is the One about whom it is written..."
