Lecture Description

The New Testament begins with two "kings" of the Jewish people. Herod, who had been appointed by Rome, and Jesus, who had been appointed by God. The contest between them represented the culmination of a career in which Herod attempted to prove himself, but for all his achievements, his life ended in disaster and ignomeny.
