IPTC INFO
CaptionJohn the Baptist also called John the Baptizer or John the Dipper is regarded as a prophet by many religions: including Christianity Islam and Mandaeanism. According to the Gospel of Luke he was a relative of Jesus ***** Jesus himself testified regarding John that he was a "burning and a shining light" John 5:35 http://bible.gospelcom.net/bible?jn+5:35. The Eastern Orthodox believe that John was the last of the Old Testament prophets thus serving as a bridge figure between that period of revelation and Jesus. They also embrace a tradition that following his death John descended into Hell and there once more preached that Jesus the Messiah was coming. ****** Salomé was the step-daughter of Herod Antipas and danced before Herod and her mother Herodias at the occasion of Herod's birthday and by doing so caused the death of John the Baptist. The New Testament suggests that Salomé; caused John to be executed because of his complaints that Herod's marriage to Herodias was adulterous; and that Herodias put her up to the demand that John be executed something the king was initially reluctant to do. According to Mark 6:21-29
