The Death of John the Baptist SwJay Sduwl Lessoa for Hiy 22, 1910 Specially Arranged for This Paper RED CHI EF, L.ESSON TEXT. Matthew 14:1-12. Mem ory verses, 10-12. GOLDEN TEXT. "He that Is slow to anRer is better than the mighty: and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a. city." Prov. 16:32. TIME. John probably was beheaded in March A. D. 29, after spending a year In prison. PLACE. John was imprisoned at Machaerus. Herod's palace-fortress on the east of the Dead Sea Suggestion and Practical Thought. Herod: a Scoundrel on a Throne. Who was the Herod that imprisoned John the Baptist? Four Herods are mentioned In the New Testament, and it is necessary to keep them distinct. 1. Herod the Great, king of Judea from 37 B. C. to 4 A. D.. the Herod who ruled when Christ was born, and massacred the babies of Bethlehem. He was a cruel tyrant. He married ten wives and had many children, one of whom was 2. Herod the Tetrarch, called Herod Antipas, the ruler of Galilee and Peraea from 4 A. D. to 39 A. D., or during our Lord's ministry. He was the Herod to whom Pilate sent Christ during his trial, and it was he who im prisoned John the Baptist. 3. Herod Agrippa.L, grandson of Herod the Great, his father being Aristobulus, was king of Judea A. D. 41-44, having a realm equal to that of Herod the Great It was he that slew James the brother of John, imprisoned Peter, accepted divino honor, and was miserably eaten up of worms. 4. Herod Agrippa II., son of the fore going, was therefore great-grandson of Herod the Great. When Paul made his famous plea before Festus this , Herod was present, with his sister wife Bernlce. What was the character of Herod Antipas? He was a weak, sensual, and treacherous man. Our Lord spoke of him as 'that fox." John: a Hero In a Dungeon. Vs. 3-5 How did John the Baptist get into "the foxes den?" Jouephus says that Herod imprisoned him because he feared that John's vast audiences might be used to foment a revolution. That may have been assigned in pub He as a pretext, but the reason given by Matthew is certainly the real one that John had openly rebuked Herod for his unholy connection with his brother's wife. Herodias: an Unnatural Mother. Vs. 6-S. Who was Herodias, who was plotting against the prophet? She was the niece of Herod and of his brother Philip. What opportunity did Herodias find for gaining her desire against John? Herod's birthday was kept with a bril liant feast "to his lords, and the high captains, and the chief men of Gali lee" (Mark). "A luxurious feast ot the period was not regarded as com plete unless it closed with some gross pantomimic representation; and doubtless Herod had adopted the civil fashion of his day. But he had not anticipated for his guests the rare lux ury of seeing a princess his own niece, a granddaughter of Herod the Great and of Marianie, a descendant therefore of Simon the high priest and the great line of Maccabaean princes a princess who afterward became the wife of a tetrarch and the mother of a king." Farrar. Who was this degraded girl? Her name was Salome, and she was the daughter of Herodias and her first husband, Philip. What are we to think of Herod's promise, whatsoever she would ask? It shows that, weak and foolish as he was, his wits were Inflamed and con fused by wine. Why did Salome go out and ask her mother what to ask (Mark)? This feature of the story does not look like a plot, or as If Herodias had not dared to confide the whole of it to her daughter. Should she ask for jewels, beautiful clothes, a palace? Prof. Stalker puts these words into the mother's mouth: "Little fool, you know not what you ask; what would all these things be to you and me un queened and outcast as we may be any day 11 John the Baptist lives?" So the girl went back "straightway with haste" (Mark) and exclaimed: "My wish is that you give me here, immedi ately, on a dish, the head of John the Baptist." "Her Indecent haste, her hideous petition, show that she shared the furies of her race." Farrar. The Transient Triumph of Wrong. Vs. 9-12. How did Salome's request affect Herod? "The king was sorry" (Mark: "exceedingly sorry"). This was not genuine repentance, or Herod would have withdrawn his promise; since falsehood, though always a sin. is a far less sin than murder. What was the close of the tragedy? The noble head was placed upon a charger a broad, fiat platter wont to contain meat for the table; and in deed the sight was meat to the vengeance-hungry Herodias. "The young dancing girl received it, and, now frightful as a Megaera. carried the hideous burden to her mother. The Voice of Conscience. "We have all of us evils enough in these charnel houses of our memory to make us dread the awakening ol conscience. Some trifle touches the hidden spring by mere accident; as in the old story of the man groping along a wall, till his finger happens to fall upon one inch of it, and immediately the con cealed door flies open and there is the skeleton. An apparently trivial cir cumstance, like some hooked pole pushed into the sea, may bring up by the locks some pale and drowned memory long plunged in an ocean of oblivion." Alexander Maclaren.
