Herod the Great
Herod: The Builder King (Length: 27 min.) - The Book of Matthew relates that Herod, King of the Jews, ordered the slaughter of the innocents to eliminate a potential challenger to his throne. Then came the birth of Jesus Christ, marked in our day by Christmas. This video describes the life and times of Herod the Great, builder-king of Judea, who ushered in a new age for Judaism and ironically laid the groundwork for the emergence of Christianity. An enigmatic ruler "with larceny in his heart and blueprints in his veins," King Herod strove to make Judea a showcase of the Roman Empire.
