Now when Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, He departed to Galilee.
For Herod had laid hold of John and bound him, and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife.
For Herod himself had sent and laid hold of John, and bound him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife; for he had married her.
Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all that was done by Him; and he was 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 old prophets had risen again.Herod said,“ John I have beheaded, but who is this of whom I hear such things?” So he sought to see Him.
But Herod the tetrarch, being rebuked by him concerning Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife, and for all the evils which Herod had done,also added this, above all, that he shut John up in prison.
