Matthew 11:1-6 New International Version

The Messengers from John the Baptist

11 1  After Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in the towns of Galilee.[1] 2  When John, who was in prison, heard about the deeds of the Messiah, he sent his disciples 3  to ask him, "Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?" 4  Jesus replied, "Go back and report to John what you hear and see: 5  The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy[2]are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. 6  Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me."
