Scripture: Matthew 14:1-10
In Matthew 14:1-10 we read another account of Herod. Herod believed that Jesus was John the Baptist resurrected as a judgment on his sin. This is the story of his wife’s daughter who pleased him with her dancing and he promised to grant her a request even up to half his kingdom. Her mother incited her to ask for the head of John the Baptist on a platter and thus Herod had John beheaded in prison. Suddenly now he was facing his own sin because it looked to him like Jesus was John the Baptist raised up from the dead. Herod was feeling very guilty about what he had done to John and rightly so! Fear of judgment was following Him!
