Matthew 17:11-13. New Elijah 6 Jul 2023
Mat 17:11 He replied,
'Elijah is indeed coming,
and he will set everything right again;
12 however, I tell you that Elijah has come already
and they did not recognize him
but treated him as they pleased;
and the Son of man will suffer similarly at their hands.'
13 Then the disciples understood
that he was speaking of John the Baptist.
