***** John the Baptist lost his life because he dared to criticise Herod Antipas for marrying his brother's wife Herodias. Imprisoned in the mountain fortress of Machaerus, in present day Jordan, John sent two of his disciples to Jesus to ask, "Are you the one who is to come or shall we look for another?" (Matthew 11 v2) Did John really doubt that Jesus was the Messiah or what did he mean by his question?
Cisterns were sometimes used as prisons (see Jeremiah 38 v6 - 13) and it is possible that this one at Machaerus was used to imprison John the Baptist..
