Mark 6:15

6:15 one of the prophets. Speculation about the identity of Jesus will lead to the accounts of the miraculous feedings (vv. 30–44; 8:1–9) and walking on water (vv. 47–52), all of which point to Jesus’ personal divinity. But first Mark will relate the circumstances of the death of John the Baptist, with whom Herod and others had identified Jesus.
