Antipas

Antipas [N] [H] [S]

  • Herod Antipas, a son of Herod the Great by his Samaritan wife Malthace. He was tetrarch of Galilee and Peraea during the whole period of our Lord's life on earth ( Luke 23:7 ). He was a frivolous and vain prince, and was chargeable with many infamous crimes ( Mark 8:15 ; Luke 3:19 ; Luke 13:31 Luke 13:32 ). He beheaded John the Baptist ( Matthew 14:1-12 ) at the instigation of Herodias, the wife of his half-brother Herod-Philip, whom he had married. Pilate sent Christ to him when he was at Jerusalem at the Passover ( Luke 23:7 ). He asked some idle questions of him, and after causing him to be mocked, sent him back again to Pilate. The wife of Chuza, his house-steward, was one of our Lord's disciples ( Luke 8:3 ).

  • A "faithful martyr" ( Revelation 2:13 ), of whom nothing more is certainly known.
