The Ignominious Murder of John the Baptist

June 10, 2018 Speaker: Pastor David Lovi Series: The Gospel of Matthew

Passage: Matthew 14:1–14:12

The Ignominious Murder of John the Baptist-min

The Ignominious Murder of John the Baptist
Matthew 14:1-12

Our passage today is a difficult one to stomach. We are going to see what, for John, was the cost of following the Lord. It is a message that the majority of churches no longer preach.

If you step into any number of "Evangelical" churches today, you'll hear that God wants you to be happy. But, even though the predominant message which is being preached today from the majority of pulpits in our country is: 'God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life', we're going to see God's plan for one of his choicest  servants and it was that he would die a criminal's death.

John the Baptist accepted that and by the grace of God, we are going to see why.
