Matthew 17 : 10-13
At that time, the disciples of Jesus asked Him, “Why do the teachers of the Law say that Elijah must come first?”
Jesus answered, “So it is : first comes Elijah; and he will restore all things. But I tell you, Elijah has already come; and they did not recognise him; and they treated him as they pleased. And they will also make the Son of Man suffer.”
Then the disciples understood that Jesus was referring to John the Baptist.
