Now when Jesus heard that John had been imprisoned, he went into Galilee.
For Herod had arrested John, bound him, and put him in prison on account of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife,
For Herod himself had sent men, arrested John, and bound him in prison on account of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife, because Herod had married her.
Now Herod the tetrarch heard about everything that was happening, and he was thoroughly perplexed, because some people were saying that John had been raised from the dead,while others were saying that Elijah had appeared, and still others that one of the prophets of long ago had risen.Herod said,“ I had John beheaded, but who is this about whom I hear such things?” So Herod wanted to learn about Jesus.
But when John rebuked Herod the tetrarch because of Herodias, his brother’s wife, and because of all the evil deeds that he had done,Herod added this to them all: He locked up John in prison.
