Question: Is Elijah truly John the Baptist in the Bible?

Answer: No. Concerning John the Baptist the Bible says, 'He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah'(Luke 1:17). We should not believe that John and Elijah were the same person, but that John had the same anointing upon him that Elijah had on him. I hope this makes sense to you.
