• Herod Antipas - The most-mentioned tetrarch of Bible
• Directly involved in the deaths of both John The Baptist and
• Luke 3-Herod being tetrarch of Galilee
• Luke 3:16 Herod the tetrarch, who had been reproved by
him for Herodias, his brother's wife, and for all the evil
things that Herod had done, added this to them all, that he
shut up John in prison."
• At that time Herod the tetrarch heard about the fame of
Jesus; and he said to his servants, "This is John the Baptist,
he has been raised from the dead; that is why these powers
are at work in him." Matthew 14:1-2 RSV
• The Messiah met the tetrarch Herod Antipas during the night
before the Crucifixion:
• "When Pilate heard this, he asked whether the man was a Galilean.
And when he learned that He belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he
sent Him over to Herod, who was himself in Jerusalem at that time.
When Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad, for he had long desired
to see Him, because he had heard about Him, and he was hoping
to see some sign done by Him. So he questioned Him at some
length; but He made no answer. The chief priests and the scribes
stood by, vehemently accusing Him. And Herod with his soldiers
treated Him with contempt and mocked Him; then, arraying Him in
gorgeous apparel, he sent Him back to Pilate. And Herod and Pilate
became friends with each other that very day, for before this they
had been at enmity with each other." (Luke 23:6-12 RSV
