Commentary on the Gospel of

Claretian Bible Diary


John was Herod’s bad conscience that is why he appeared to be always coming back:  guilt does not let you rest in peace for long.  Herod’s presence at this point is an ominous one, and even more ominous is his curiosity about Jesus; one is better off without the curiosity of such people.  It is empty curiosity strongly contrasted with the interest that real disciples have in turn.
