18 The disciples of John reported to him about all these things.19 Summoning [a]two of his disciples, John sent them to the Lord, saying, “Are You the [b]Expected One, or do we look for someone else?”20 When the men came to Him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to You, to ask, ‘Are You the [c]Expected One, or do we look for someone else?’”21 At that [d]very time He cured many people of diseases and afflictions and evil spirits; and He gave sight to many who were blind.22 And He answered and said to them, “Go and report to John what you have seen and heard: theblind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, thepoor have the gospel preached to them.23 Blessed is he [e]who does not take offense at Me.”

Yes, I say to you, and one who is more than a prophet.27 This is the one about whom it is written,
‘Behold, I send My messenger[h]ahead of You, Who will prepare Your way before You.’
