Jesus said “Even if John doesn’t die, I’m still the one to be followed.”
The disciples response “Did you hear that John isn’t going to die!” The misunderstanding started to spread.
John stopped it in its track “No, Jesus didn’t say that I wouldn’t die. He said that my death shouldn’t matter to you followers of Christ.”
Could you imagine how Christians would be effected around the world if they were allowed to keep believing the lie that John wouldn’t die? John’s death would have shaken their faith to the core because they would begin to doubt Christ’s words.
If you hear a piece of information that you know to be false…be bold in standing up for the truth. If you let it go people could be seriously hurt.
