in the CHRISTIAN BIBLES
Was John the Baptist Elijah?
For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to
come. Matthew 11:13-14
But I say unto you, That Elias is come already.... then
the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the
Baptist. Matthew 17:12-13
But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they
have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of
him. Mark 9:13
And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias [Elijah]? And
he saith, I am not. John 1:21
- The Biblically Correct answer: John the Baptist was Elijah.
- This is an easy one to resolve. Jesus said that John the Baptist was Elijah, so who cares what John the Baptist thought about it? He was whoever Jesus said he was.
In any set of contradictory verses, the Jesus card always wins.
