Gospel of Matthew – Martyrdom of John the Baptist

In [esvignore]Matthew 14:1-12[/esvignore] we encounter a sad story. Here Matthew relates how John the Baptist met his end at the hands of Herod Antipas and Herodias, two very wicked people who serve as powerful pictures of the opposition to the Word of God. John’s life tracks very closely to the life of Jesus, and the story’s position in the gospel marks a shift in Jesus’ ministry.

Public Reading: [esvignore]Colossians 1:3-14[/esvignore]; Benediction: [esvignore]Psalm 29:11[/esvignore]
