    Contributed by Geoffrey Foot on Jul 14, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    We are all under pressure - from family, from friends, from work. Herodias' plot to kill John the Baptist is all about such pressure & saving face in the presence of those who you think are important - sure God is the only one who really matters.
