John’s disciples buried Him

Herod had ordered the death of John the Baptist, and,

Then his disciples came and took away the body and buried it, and went and told Jesus (Matthew 14:12).

They did the honorable thing and buried the body of their teacher, and they believed that Jesus needed to hear this development, knowing that John had prepared the hearts of the people to receive Jesus as the Lamb of God.

Proper treatment of a dead body is biblical.
