These are verses about John the Baptist, the cousin of Jesus. He was the baby in Elizabeth's womb who jumped when Mary, the Mother of Jesus, spoke to Elizabeth. As an adult John began preaching that the Messiah was coming.
“This is he of whom it is written,
“‘Behold, I send my messenger before your face,
who will prepare your way before you.’
Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has arisen no one greater than John the Baptist. Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.”
What does THAT mean, the least of you is greater in the kingdom of heaven than he? How and why can we be (I assuming we are the least) greater than John the Baptist?
