Jesus continued to teach for a few months in the land of Judea, which included the Jerusalem area. John the Baptist was also teaching in this area, but Jesus and His disciples were teaching and baptizing more people than he. John explained that this was the way it should be. “He must increase, but I must decrease.”
John’s preaching got him into trouble with Herod the tetrarch because he had condemned him for his evil life and for taking his brother Philip’s wife.
