Mark 6:18-21

Chapter Blog – Deuteronomy

18 For John had been saying to Herod, “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife.” 19 So Herodias nursed a grudge against John and wanted to kill him. But she was not able to, 20 because Herod feared John and protected him, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man. When Herod heard John, he was greatly puzzled; yet he liked to listen to him. 21 Finally the opportune time came. On his birthday Herod gave a banquet for his high officials and military commanders and the leading men of Galilee.

  1. Whats up people? Receiving daily butt kickings but keeping up. Pray for a brother.

    I see two things here.

    One is that people do not like to have their sin revealed and that they resent the messenger who speaks truth to them.

    The other is that without the revelation of the Spirit, truth does not make sense to the natural man. Herod liked to listen to John and he knew that this was a holy man, but his message confused Herod. Without understanding, these words did not make sense.

  2. I miss you Rick!

    I tried reading this scripture in my Bible to see if I could get something else out of it but it seems that I have the same version! Anyways, I was a little confused at verse 18, but I get it now. To be honest, marrying your brothers wife just seems wrong nomatter how you think about it. Let me get this straight; Herod (Phillips Brother) and Herodias (Phillips Wife) were together. John the Baptist told them it was unlawful and Herodias didn’t like it but Herod accepted it because he liked what John said?

  3. Phillip is alive and Herod was a wicked mean man and took what he wanted…he took Phillips wife as his own and his wife was put away…so he was a married man laying with the wife of another man….John was pointing out his sin….

    Rick reveals the truth of this passage

    People do not like their sin revealed and most importantly without the Spirit to reveal the truth we cant understand
