I was reading the gospel of Matthew and something caught my attention. In Matt 3:13-17 John ackowledges that Jesus is the chosen one by saying “But John stayed him, saying: I ought to be baptized by thee, and comedy thou to me?”
Then later in Matthew 11:2-3 John, while in prison, asks his disciple if Christ is really the chosen:”Now when John had heard in prison the works do Christ: sending two of his disciples he said to him:
3 Art thou he that art to come , or look we for another?” DR
I don’t get it. I thought John already recognized him when he baptized him. And know he’s not sure? I’m confused.
