Musing Through Matthew- John Honored With OT Prophecy

Let us muse again today from Matthew 11: 9-10 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for today we find John is honored with an Old Testament prophecy. John has come and confessed Jesus and now Jesus confessed John with an Old Testament prophecy from Malachi. Jesus changed the pronouns in Malachi were the pronouns refer to the Father and in Matthew the pronouns speak of Jesus. He magnifies the fact of deity; Father and Son are one and the same. Jesus said that John was the forerunner and messenger to prepare the way of this one who claimed to be God was coming.
