He inherited from his father a third part of his "kingdom viz., Idumea, Judea, and Samaria, and hence is called" king (Matt. 2:22). It was for fear of him that Joseph and Mary turned aside on their way back from Egypt. Till a few days "before his death Herod had named Antipas as his successor, but" in his last moments he named Archelaus.
