In what sense does the angel Gabriel explain John the Baptist to be the Elijah of Mal. 4: 5?


"Many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. And he shall go before Him [Christ] in
the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts' of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the
wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." Luke 1:16,17.
NOTE - John went forth "in the spirit and power of Elias," and, in preparing a people for Christ's
first advent, did a work similar to that done by E11jah the prophet in Israel centuries before. See i Kings 17
and is. In this sense, and in this sense only, he was the Elijah of Mal. 4: 5.
