Why is jurisdiction found in the Bible
The only mention of "jurisdiction" is in
& applied to Herod's jurisdiction. Pontius Pilate was the Roman procurator assigned by the Roman government. Whereas Herod Antipas, was not of Roman birth, but from a mixed parentage of Idumean & Arabian. He was therefore assigned by Rome as King (the Tetrarch) over Galilee & Perea, therefore Pilate was more than willing to pass Jesus onto Herod, as Pilate knew nothing of or cared little about Jewish matters & arguments. So, when we read of Herod's jurisdiction, it means that Jesus was assigned to Herod, as Herod had control over that part of Roman territory in which Jesus was born & lived.
