Luke 1:76; Luke 20:6; Matthew 14:5

76  And you, child, will be called xthe prophet of ythe Most High;

for zyou will go before the Lord to prepare his ways,

But if we say, From man, all the people will stone us to death, for they are convinced that John was na prophet.

And though he wanted to put him to death, bhe feared the people, because they held him to be ca prophet.
