Before John's death. Jesus did not begin his minsitry until AFTER John baptised him and Jesus then fasted in the desert for 40 days. It was later that John died. Just before he died, he sent word asking if Jesus was the Messiah and Jesus told them to tell John that the deaf hear and the blind see.

In this gospel, Jesus' public ministry lasted thre years, so Jesus was crucified something less than thrre years after the death of John.The first-century Jewish historian Josephus provides a detailed account of the circumstances surrounding the death of John the Baptist. The wedding og Herod Antipas and Herodias took place in 34 CE and John was executed some time later - either 35 or early 36 CE.
