Part 2: Herod the Great

Key Passage(s): Matthew 2:1-12

On the heels of Part 1: Caesar Augustus (please read description of that teaching to understand this series), this teaching moves from a macro view of the Roman world, and takes a micro view of what was happening in the Jewish world at the time of Christ’s birth, understanding Herod the Great, mentioned in Matthew 2 (since Matthew is pitting Herod vs. Jesus), who was the most powerful man the Jewish world had ever witnessed in the land of Israel. I pray that as you watch this teaching (and the one on Caesar Augustus) that your understanding of the true Christmas story will be dramatically deepened!
