Things of the Spirit
Footnote 9

What does the Bible say?

I use the King James Version, but any version will tell the same story.

Matthew 11:13-14
For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.

Matthew 17:10-13
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

Mark 9:11-13
And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? And he answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that he must suffer many things, and be set at nought. But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.
