Third Sunday of Advent Year A, Gospel – Matthew 11:2-11

2 When John the Baptist heard in prison of the works of the Christ, he sent his disciples to Jesus

3 with this question, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?”

4 Jesus said to them in reply, “Go and tell John what you hear and see:

5 the blind regain their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor have the good news proclaimed to them.

6 And blessed is the one who takes no offense at me.”

7 As they were going off, Jesus began to speak to the crowds about John, “What did you go out to the desert to see? A reed swayed by the wind?

8 Then what did you go out to see? Someone dressed in fine clothing? Those who wear fine clothing are in royal palaces.

9 Then why did you go out? To see a prophet? Yes, I tell you, and more than a prophet.

10 This is the one about whom it is written: Behold, I am sending my messenger ahead of you; he will prepare your way before you.

11 Amen, I say to you, among those born of women there has been none greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.”
