And Herod said, John have I beheaded: but who is this, of whom I hear such things? And he desired to see him.
Note 2 at Lu 9:9: The Scriptures don't state clearly how long John was imprisoned before he was beheaded. Mt 14:13 would imply that John was beheaded during Jesus' Galilean tour "when Jesus heard of it." The time between these accounts of his imprisonment and his death was approximately one and a half years.
