In 37 B.C, King Herod was appointed as King of Judea by Romans. Many of the historians believe that Herod had a successful reign. Herod was   practically Jew but ethnically Arab. He was the Villain in the Christian history. He was a wicked king who wants to kill baby Jesus because he saw him as a threat. In the time before Christ, he ruled over the Jews in Israel.

He was not completely Jewish. He was a great schemer and he took the advantage of Roman political unrest. The favor of Octavian was won by Herod during the war in Civil Empire. The favor of Octavian was gained by Herod in Civil war. Octavian was later became the Roman Emperor of Augustus Caesar. An ambitious building program was launched in city of Caesarea and Jerusalem by Herod when he was king.

The magnificent temple of Jerusalem was also restored by him and then later on Romans destroyed that temple. Because Herod has ruled Jewish population so Romans gave him the title of “King of the Jews”. Joseph who was the step father of Herod was warned by an angel in dream, who told him to take Mary, flee and his son to Egypt to escape Herod. Joseph returns to Egypt after the death of Herod. Herod was died because of deliberating and painful disease that causes breathing problems rooting of his body, convulsions and worms.

The tomb of Herod’s was discovered by Israeli Archeologist at the city of Herodium. The position of Israel was strengthened by Herod in the ancient World by increasing its commerce and then turned it into the trading hub of East and Arabia. Theaters, port, temples, markets, amphitheaters, housing, wallsaround Jerusalem and many other place was included in the massive building plan of Herod. He also kept order in Israel by the use of secret tyrannical rule and police.Well work was done by Herod and Israel Roman Conquerors.

The Herod was brutal man he killed his father-in-law, his sons and his wives. He chosen the favor of Rome over his people and has also ignored the laws of God. Herod’s life was one of cruel political pragmatism; although the historical mark for the extermination of infants is entirely Scriptural it seems totally possible that King Herod was proficient of the massacre. There are many lessons given by life of Herod that includes a person can turn into monster due to uncontrolled ambition and we should escalate what God has given to us instead of distressing about others.
