Herod the tetrarch was Herod Antipas, the second son of the cruel...

At that time Herod the tetrarch heard the report about Jesus and said to his servants, This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead, and therefore these powers are at work in him.
Matthew 14:1.2.

Herod the tetrarch was Herod Antipas, the second son of the cruel king Herod the Great. Herod Antipas spent his childhood in Rome. After the death of his father he became governor of Galilee and Perea. The evangelist Matthew reported the beheading of John the Baptist, for which Herod Antipas was responsible. What was the background to this heinous deed? Adultery: Herod had divorced his first wife to marry Herodias, the wife of his half-brother. John the Baptist, the forerunner of the Lord Jesus, had dared to reprimand Antipas publicly. Without further ado Herod had God’s messenger imprisoned. Not wanting to arouse the anger of the people, he didn’t dare to have him killed.
The tetrarch’s measure by no means satisfied Herodias, who maliciously took steps to have John the Baptist beheaded in prison (cf. Matthew 14:3-12).

When Herod Antipas then learned of the countless miracles performed by Jesus, he had only one explanation: John the Baptist must have risen from the dead. The tetrarch’s conscience plagued him, reminding him that his sins had not escaped God’s attention.

How often has God made it clear to us that we are guilty before Him? We know from history that Herod Antipas never altered his wicked way of life. But we can, by confessing the guilt of our life to the One who will give full forgiveness and peace with God, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Today’s reading: Job 15:1-35 · Acts 10:1-16

OF KEYS AND DOORS

Every apartment or compartment with a lock has its key. It takes a key to open the gate of a house and several keys to enter the house its rooms. If you have fridge, car or wardrobe, you will equally have their keys. From the foregoing therefore, it is apparent that several good things with value have their...More

Blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in His ways…Behold, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD.

The Lord has promised blessing to the man who fears Him. Scripture is clear that the entire family is impacted when the head of the home and...More

BE DETERMINED TO WAIT

There is a waiting period that precedes the manifestation of great expectations. The gestation period of an African elephant is the longest of all mammals. It lasts for about 22 months, which is almost two calendar years. Contrast this with that of a rat which is just about 20 days. If your expectation is great,...More

SCHEMING NOT ALLOWED

In Numbers 16, we read of a highly explosive rebellion that rocked God’s people in the wilderness. Some leaders were not satisfied with the level of assignment God had apportioned to them. Instead of going through Moses to God to ask if there could be an expansion of their job description, they began to eye the...More
