John 1:15; John 1:27; John 3:30–31; Acts 13:25

15 (fJohn bore witness about him, and cried out, This was he of whom I said, gHe who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.)

27 even whe who comes after me, the strap of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie.

30 lHe must increase, but I must decrease.1

31 mHe who comes from above nis above all. He who is of the earth belongs to the earth and ospeaks in an earthly way. pHe who comes from heaven nis above all.

25 And as John was finishing his course, uhe said, What do you suppose that I am? I am not he. No, but behold, after me one is coming, the sandals of whose feet I am not worthy to untie.
