Remembering the death of John the Baptist as we also remember the death of Christ.
The Gospel which calls to remembrance the martyrdom of John the Baptist forces us to face squarely the unwelcome intruder of death, both his and our own. We are mortal, though we would love to forget that. But so also was Jesus mortal, and his death teaches us in no uncertain terms that he knows what we face; not only so, but he rose from the dead. As John was Jesus' forerunner, so Jesus himself was our forerunner through death to resurrection and life. Sermon for Midweek of Lent IV. The video is here.
