John the Baptist was the forerunner to Jesus of Nazareth. He just like Jesus did have use similar to Buddhism or an ascetic lifestyle their teachings were very similar and he was sacrificed or crucified with his head being logged off just as Jesus Christ was sacrificed or crucified it was for the same reasons. It was out of fear of the powers that be that they would lose their power.

Mmmmm. I agree.
