Unit 2, choice 1 Matthew 11:1-19; Luke 7:18-35; John the Baptist

What did the two disciples of John the Baptist ask Jesus Christ? They asked him if He was who they should be looking for, the one prophesied to come or if they need to keep looking.
3 Things I would have told John if I had been with those two men: I would tell him that Christ testified of his (John's) goodness and that those that are about the Lord's errand are always persecuted no matter what they do. I would also definitely tell of the miracles that were performed by Christ as He showed who He was. That is something that couldn't be overlooked.
Why John wanted his disciples to go to Jesus Christ: He was in prison and he knew it would be important for his disciples to keep the faith. Christ showed unto them miracles and also testified of John's good works and righteousness.
What did Christ say about John the Baptist?  He was the greatest prophet among them.
3 Reasons from Joseph Smith why John the Baptist is among the greatest prophets: he was the one entrusted with the divine mission to prepare the way for the face of the Lord, he was entrusted with the divine mission to baptize Jesus Christ, and at that time, was the only legal administrator in the affairs of the kingdom there was then on the earth, and holding the keys of power.
John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease. I think that John's attitude here is that the credit needs to go to Christ and he should be the one that people remember, remember His miracles and works and all that he does goes to the Savior. It is important for all of us to be more like this. We need to give all of our credit to Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and live our lives in honor of them. We can be true Christians.
