Archeologists Find Tomb of King Herod the Great


Julie Stahl
Jerusalem Bureau Chief


Jerusalem (CNSNews.com) - Archeologists here believe they have found the tomb of King Herod the Great, who ruled in the Roman-occupied land of Biblical Judea at the time of Jesus' birth.

The find is significant to both Jews and Christians because Herod was so famous, said archeologist Prof. Ehud Netzer, who headed the excavation on behalf of the Institute of Archeology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Appointed King of Judea by the Roman rulers in 37 B.C., Herod reigned until his death in 4 B.C. He was known for his great building projects and his cruelty. In fact, he was so hated that sometime in antiquity his apparent burial coffin was smashed to pieces.

King Herod - there's nothing good to say about him IMHO.

Another of history's madmen.

[sigh]

King Herod always had this desire to prove he really was a Jew even though his genealogy showed him to be a Edomite. He was always possessed with the fear that a true descendant of King David would someday take his throne which led him to try and destroy anyone that he thought might be a threat.

It is so sad that his greatest accomplishment is now found in his tomb which provides corroboration to the words of Matthew and Luke.
