Mark 6:21-29 – A Birthday Beheading

|| Matthew 14:3-12;[1] Luke 3:19, 20

MK6:21 When an opportune day arrived, Herod held a feast on his birthday[2] for his officials, commanders, and the leading men of Galilee. MK6:22 Now the daughter of Herodias entered and danced, and she pleasured Herod and all his guests. So the king said to the young girl: “Ask me whatever you want, and I will give it to you.” MK6:23 Herod made an oath to her: “Whatever you ask me, I will give you, up to half my realm.” MK6:24 Now the young girl left and went to her mother Herodias, asking: “What shall I ask for?” Her mother said: “The head of John the Baptist!” MK6:25 So right away the young girl returned to the king, asking: “I want you to give me right now the head of John the Baptist on a plate.” MK6:26 Now this caused the king to be sorry about his oath, not only because of his guests, but also he did not want to break his word to her. MK6:27 Right away the king sent the captain of his bodyguards and commanded the head be brought to him. The captain left and beheaded John in his prison cell. MK6:28 Then he brought his head on a plate and gave it to the young girl, and she gave it to her mother. MK6:29 Now when John’s disciples heard of this they came and removed the body and put it in a tomb.
