John 1:25

Context
1:25 So they asked John, 1  “Why then are you baptizing if you are not the Christ, 2  nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?”

1 tn Grk “And they asked him, and said to him”; the referent (John) has been specified in the translation for clarity, and the phrase has been simplified in the translation to “So they asked John.”

2 tn Or “the Messiah” (Both Greek “Christ” and Hebrew and Aramaic “Messiah” mean “one who has been anointed”).

sn See the note on Christ in 1:20.
