Bible Text: Mark 6:14-29 |


As we continue in our series on the Gospel of Mark, we come to the only story in the book which is not about Jesus. The death of John the Baptist is presented as an almost parenthetical addition to the main point, which is Herod’s belief that Jesus is really John raised from the dead. The relationship between John and Herod is a study in what happens when the Word of God is listened to as entertainment rather than what it is: the message of eternal, everlasting, creator, redeemer Lord God to the creation which is lost without Him.
