Matt 11:11-15

11Truly 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.12From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force.13For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John came;14and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come.15Let anyone with ears listen!
