John the Baptist Imprisoned
Interwoven Gospels

Now Herod the Tetrarch, being reproved by John concerning Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip, and for all the evils which Herod had done, added this also to them all, that he sent forth and laid hold of John and bound him and put him in prison, for the sake of Herodias: because he had married her. For John said to Herod, "It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife."

Then Herodias held it against him and desired to kill him, but she could not, for Herod, when he desired to put him to death, feared the multitude, because they held him as a prophet; also he feared John, knowing him to be a righteous and holy man: therefore he kept him safe; and when he heard him, he was much perplexed, and yet he heard him gladly.
