John the Baptist was the cousin of Jesus, son of Elizabeth, and one of the most important prophets that ever spoke on behalf of God. He got people ready to welcome Jesus. He always spoke the truth, and sometimes it made people uncomfortable. When he spoke against the evil activities of King Herod, his wife, Herodias, tricked Herod into killing John. Today we remember the day that John bravely died for God’s truth.
