The Murder of the Greatest Prophet

Pastor Matt Tarr – AM Sermon

Scripture: Mark 6:14-29

Christ referred to John the Baptist, His own cousin, as the greatest man who ever lived, and also the greatest prophet. John’s ministry was one of calling the people to repentance, and this ran afoul of King Herod, whom John had personally rebuked on multiple occasions. Contrary to what might be expected of the greatest prophet, John’s story has no happy ending, but is serves as yet another reminder of how the world treats men of God.

Add. Ref.: Acts 7:51-52; Acts 4:12, 23-31
