Where is John in this passage?
What does He send his disciples to do?
(John the Baptist is in jail. He sends his disciples to question Jesus and ask Him if He is the One the prophets wrote about in the Old Testament.)
What does Jesus say? Why do you think He said this?
(Jesus replied, “Go back and report to John what you hear and see: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor." Matthew 11:4-5 Jesus is referring to writings by the prophet Isaiah - "Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy" Isaiah 35:6 He wants to show John that He fulfills the prophecy of the Old Testament. Jesus knew that John would know these passages.)
We can be confident that Jesus is who He says He is.
