The Strangest of All Gifts: A Beheading

Artwork for The King's Ministry: A Study of Matthew 14-20

Matthew 14:1–13 contains one of the most shocking and gruesome stories in the pages of Scripture. One we’d rather just skip over.

But we can’t cover our eyes from the danger of treachery, the intimidation of peer pressure, the power of rationalization, the addictiveness of sin, and the reality of injustice.

To help us avoid the pitfalls of our deadly world, Pastor Chuck Swindoll explores the events of Herod Antipas’ salacious and self-flattering birthday party, which led to the beheading of John the Baptizer.
