11.6  Contradiction Between The Saying Of Jesus And John The Baptist

 

According to Jesus Christ, before he came as the promised Messiah of God, Elijah must come first to announce on his coming:

 

“His disciples asked, ‘Why do the teachers of religious law insist that Elijah must return before the Messiah comes?’ Jesus replied, ‘Elijah is indeed coming first to set everything in order.” (Matthew 17:10-11)

 

Who is this ‘Elijah’ who would proclaimed the coming of ‘the Messiah’? According to the Gospel of John, when some of the Jewish Rabbi from Jerusalem ask John the Baptist whether he was the Elijah, he replied:

 

“I am not the Messiah, he said. Well then, who are you? They asked. Are you the Elijah? No he replied.” (1:19-21, NLT)

 

While Jesus is quoted of saying:

 

“I assure you, of all who ever lived, none is greater than John the Baptist…And if you are willing to accept what I say, he is Elijah, the one the prophets said would come.” (Matthew 11:14, NLT)

 

Jesus says that John is the Elijah who must come first while John himself denied that he is the Elijah promised by Jesus, with the result that the statements of John and Jesus contradict each other.
