Now when Jesus heard that John had been taken into custody, He withdrew into Galilee;
For when Herod had John arrested, he bound him and put him in prison because of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip.
For Herod himself had sent men and had John arrested and bound in prison on account of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip, because he had married her.
Now Herod the tetrarch heard about all that was happening; and he was greatly perplexed, because it was said by some that John had risen from the dead,and by some that Elijah had appeared, and by others that one of the prophets of old had risen.Herod said,“ I myself had John beheaded; but who is this man about whom I hear such things?” And he kept trying to see Him.
But when Herod the tetrarch was reprimanded by him regarding Herodias, his brother’s wife, and regarding all the evil things which Herod had done,Herod also added this to them all: he locked John up in prison.
