In Mark 6 we find Jesus reaching out to various people. He had a marvelous concern for the Spiritual wellbeing of people.
q They did what they were told. That's basically what Jesus asks of us. John 14:15
· John was put in prison because of Herodias. It was convenient for Herod to deal with his wife in this way, in spite of the fact that John was an innocent man.
· This story teaches us how easy it is to compromise our convictions. Herod knew that John was not deserving of death but he compromised those convictions to please others.
· The dance performed by his niece was a sensual dance that no self-respecting Jewish teenage daughter would have normally performed. Nor would have parents permitted it. Vs. 22
· Herod made quite a boast. The girl could ask for basically whatever she wanted. Vss. 22-23
