Death of John the Baptist

Contributed by Southpaw Ben

This year Herod, ruler of Galilee and Perea, beheads John the Baptists at the request of his step-daughter, according to the Gospels.

My Take by Southpaw Ben
The Jewish historian Josephus claims that the killing of John leads to the eventual defeat of Herod in a battle with Aretas, which happened 4 years after the execution of John the Baptist.
