Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In his talk on Matthew 14:1-12, Steve Gregg discusses the story of John the Baptist's imprisonment and subsequent execution by Herod. He highlights the fact that John was not simply curious about Jesus' miracles, but was a sincere follower of Jesus. Gregg discusses Herod's adultery with Herodias, his brother Philip's wife, and emphasizes that this was a sin that led to John's execution. He concludes by urging listeners to repent of their sins and not ignore the truth like Herod did.
