As they were leaving, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John. “What did you go out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? Really, what did you go out to see? A man dressed in fancy clothes? See, those who wear fancy clothes live in kings’ houses. Really, what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I tell you, and even more than a prophet! This is the man about whom it is written, ‘See, I am sending my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way before you.’ Truly I tell you, among those born of a woman no one has appeared who is greater than John the Baptist. Yet even the least important person in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. “From the days of John the Baptist until the present, the kingdom of heaven has been forcefully advancing, and violent people have been attacking it. For the Law and all the Prophets prophesied up to the time of John, and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come. Let the person who has ears listen!
“To what can I compare this generation? It's like little children who sit in the marketplaces and shout to each other, ‘A wedding song we played for you and the dance you did but scorn. A woeful dirge we chanted, too, but then you would not mourn.’ For John didn't come eating or drinking, yet people say, ‘He has a demon!’ The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look, a glutton and a drunk, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Absolved from every act of sin, is wisdom by her kith and kin.” (Matthew 11:7-19)
