John the Baptist is killed, having made political enemies by convicting Herod and Herodias of an unlawful marriage before God. Jesus withdraws, hearing it, feeds 5000, leaving 12 baskets of leftovers. Afterward He sends the crowd away, sends the disciples across the lake on their own, while He goes up the hillside to pray most of the night. He then shows His power over the wind and waves again. He heals the sick on the other side of the lake. Herod hears about Jesus and if afraid He is John come back to haunt his guilty conscience.
