Scripture Reference: Matthew 14:1-13a
Matthew inserts an interesting little story about the fate of John the Baptist at the hands of Herod Antipas, king of Judea in Jesus day. But the life of Herod provides an anti-example to us who, with the benefit of hindsight, can see what evil choices do to spoil a conscience.

Sermon Points:

  • Herod’s Choices
  • Herod’s Consequences
  • Herod’s (Untaken) Path Out
