Herod Antipas

FoxThe New Testament and Josephus' Antiquities XVIII constitute the main historical sources for Herod Antipas, who is commonly remembered for his role in the execution of John the Baptist (Matt.14:1‑12). He inherited his father's political cunning, which may have been why Jesus referred to him as "that fox" (Luke 13:32)

(A feminine form of Herod)

The daughter of Aristobulus and granddaughter of Herod The Great and Mariamne. Herodias inherited the ruthlessness of her grandfather and the royal blood of her grandmother's Hasmonean forbears.
