1:19 [11 [And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?

(11) John is neither the Messiah, nor like any of the other prophets, but is the herald of Christ, who is now present.

1:20 And he[ g] confessed, and[ h] denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.

(g) He did acknowledge him, and spoke of him plainly and openly.
(h) This repeating of the one and the selfsame thing, though in different words, is often used by the Hebrews, and it has great force, for they used to speak one thing twice in order to set it out more certainly and plainly.

1:21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith,[ i] I am not. Art thou[ k] that prophet? And he answered, No.

(i) The Jews thought that Elias would come again before the days of the Messiah, and they took as the basis of their opinion (Mal 4:5), which is to be understood as referring to John, see (Mt 11:14). And yet John denies that he is Elias, answering their question just as they meant it.
k) They are inquiring about some great prophet, and not about Christ, for John denied before that he is Christ, for they thought that some great prophet would be sent like Moses, using to support this position (De 18:15), which is to be understood to refer to all the company of the prophets and ministers, which have been and shall be to the end, and especially of Christ who is the head of all prophets


Elijah (Hebrewאֱלִיָּהוּ, Eliyahu, meaning “My God is Yahu/Jah[1][2]) or Elias (/ɪˈlaɪ.əs/GreekΗλίαςElíasSyriacܐܸܠܝܼܵܐ‎ ElyāeArabic: إلياس or إلياIlyās or Ilyā) was a prophet and a miracle worker who lived in the northern kingdom of Israel[3] during the reign of Ahab (9th century BC), according to the Books of Kings in the Hebrew Bible. In 1 Kings 18, Elijah defended the worship of the Jewish God over that of the Canaanite deity Baal. God also performed many miracles through Elijah, including resurrection (raising the dead), bringing fire down from the sky, and entering Heaven alive “by a whirlwind
