Agrippa I


"The grandson of Herod the Great, and son of Aristobulus and" Bernice. The Roman emperor Caligula made him governor first of "the territories of Philip, then of the tetrarchy of Lysanias," "with the title of king ("king Herod"), and finally of that of" "Antipas, who was banished, and of Samaria and Judea. Thus he" became ruler over the whole of Palestine. He was a persecutor of "the early Christians. He slew James, and imprisoned Peter (Acts" "12:1-4). He died at Caesarea, being "eaten of worms" (Acts" "12:23), A.D. 44. (Comp. Josephus, Ant. xix. 8.)"

"Son of the foregoing, was born at Rome, A.D. 27. He was the" brother of Bernice and Drusilla. The Emperor Claudius (A.D. 48) invested him with the office of superintendent of the Temple of "Jerusalem, and made him governor (A.D. 50) of Chalcis. He was" "afterwards raised to the rank of king, and made governor over" "the tetrarchy of Philip and Lysanias (Acts 25:13; 26:2, 7). It" was before him that Paul delivered (A.D. 59) his speech recorded in Acts 26. His private life was very profligate. He died (the "last of his race) at Rome, at the age of about seventy years," A.D. 100.
