  • John 1: 19-21

    This might be a well worn topic but I've never heard an explanation that makes sense to me.

    Who is "the Prophet" as opposed to the Messiah?

    John 1:19–21 (NKJV): 19 Now this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”
    20 He confessed, and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.”
    21 And they asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?”
    He said, “I am not.”
    “Are you the Prophet?”
    And he answered, “No.”

      Luke 1:17 King James Version (KJV)

      17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

      John the Baptist came in the spirit and power of Elijah.

          Maybe? At least that seems like a good possibility.

            He wasn’t Elijah, he came in that spirit!

            Not to say that he was reincarnated, as Elijah .

              Perhaps it's the person Abraham paid Tithes to In Heb. 7 ?

                Maybe.

                I don't agree with this but I know that Muslims think "the Prophet" spoken of here was Mohammed.

                There does seem to be three distinct people spoken of here and John said he was none of them... the Messiah, the Prophet and Elijah.
                I've always been a little mystified by this scripture.

                  Hi Rachel.

                  I believe the "Prophet" and the "Messiah" are one and the same. Remember John is simply saying what he is not.....the Messiah, the Prophet or Elijah. The fact that he is not the Messiah also means he is not the Prophet.

                  Moses said the Prophet would come after him [Deuteronomy 18:15]. Many assume that this is Joshua. Is it?

                  Yeshua testifies that Moses wrote about Him [John 5:46]. The people all believe that Yeshua was indeed....the Prophet [John 6:14] and [John 7:40].

                  Peter nails it when he says..........[Acts 3:20-22] that he remains in heaven until the time of restoration. Who? The Messiah and then Peter follows up with..........Moses said...........[Deuteronomy 18:15].

                  It is interesting to note that the Hebrew, Joshua and Yeshua are basically one and the same in pronunciation.

                  It's like asking a big tall cowboy......"Are you John Wayne"? Then asking him....Are you the "Duke"?
                  The stone was not rolled away from the tomb so He could come out. It was removed so the world could look in.......... and see that the tomb was empty.
