John the Baptist’s disciples bury him (Mt 14:12-14:12)

“John’s disciples came.

They took his body.

They buried it.

Then they went

And told Jesus.”


καὶ προσελθόντες οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ ἦραν τὸ πτῶμα καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτόν, καὶ ἐλθόντες ἀπήγγειλαν τῷ Ἰησοῦ.


This burial of John the Baptist can be found in Mark, chapter 6:29, and here.  John’s disciples came and took his body (καὶ προσελθόντες οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ ἦραν τὸ πτῶμα).  They buried the body of John the Baptist (καὶ ἔθαψαν αὐτόν), but there is no indication of where they buried it.  Then they went and told Jesus about what had happened (καὶ ἐλθόντες ἀπήγγειλαν τῷ Ἰησοῦ).
