 10 Then his disciples asked him, "Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first [before the Christ]?"

 11 And Jesus answered them, "Elijah truly does come first, and restores all things.

 12 But I tell you that Elijah has come already, and they did not recognize him, but have done to him whatever they wished. Likewise also will the Son of man suffer from them."

 13 Then the disciples understood that he spoke to them of John the Baptist [being the Spirit of Elijah].
