Book description
The man we know as King Herod the Great is mentioned only briefly in the Bible. Nearly a century after his death, Josephus, a first century historian, described him as a king who “stole the throne like a fox, ruled like a tiger and died like a dog,” having murdered most of his family.
But who was Herod really? Was he a spineless collaborator with Rome, the ruthless killer of infants and the would be assassin of baby Jesus? Or was he an astute politician, a forceful king and the greatest builder in Jewish history? Join the world’s leading archaeologists, historians and scholars as they search for the truth about one of the Bible’s most legendary villains. Running time: 50 min., (JH - Adult)
