Matthew 17:9 - 17:13
Steve Gregg explores Matthew 17:9-13, where Jesus clarifies that John the Baptist fulfilled the prophecy of Elijah's return. While the scribes had expected the literal return of Elijah, Jesus explains that John came in the spirit and power of Elijah. Gregg suggests that the prophecy of the return of Elijah in Malachi may still occur in the last days, restoring hearts between fathers and children. Ultimately, Gregg emphasizes the need for trust in God's plan, as the disciples were surprised by John's treatment but should not question God's decisions.
