Mark 6–out of order

A lot happens in Mark 6, and half of it is obscene. Sometimes what is not explicitly described is worth a glance. Mark describes the death of John as the reward for lust and obscenity.

It is one of the hardest stories in the Bible.

How could God be so close and not save his cousin, his messenger, his friend?
