ST JOHN THE BAPTIST.

WHO IS ST JOHN THE BAPTIST?

 JOHN REGINALD BAUTISTA OP

 

John the Baptist, the cousin of Jesus was born in Judea from Zechariah and Elizabeth. At about 30, he began preaching in the desert around the Jordan River to prepare for the coming of the messiah. After the baptism of Jesus, his mission came to an end. Soon afterwards, he was arrested for denouncing the adultery of King Herod with Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip. Thereafter Herodias harbored a grudge and wanted to kill John. The opportunity came during the birthday of Herod, the daughter of Herodias, a certain Salome, performed such an enchanting dance that Herod swore to give her whatever she might ask for.

Prompted by her mother, she said;

“GIVE ME HERE ON A PLATTER THE HEAD OF JOHN THE BAPTIST.”

The king was distressed, but because of the presence of the guests, he agreed, John’s head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, who took it to her mother.

Later, his disciples came, took away the body and laid it in a tomb. St John was martyred about a year before our Lord’s crucifixion and death.
