Herod was delighted to see Yeshua, because he had heard about him and for a long time had been wanting to meet him; indeed, he hoped to see him perform some miracle.
He questioned him at great length,
but Yeshua made no reply. However, the head cohanim and the Torah-teachers stood there, vehemently pressing their case against him.
Herod and his soldiers treated Yeshua with contempt and made fun of him. Then, dressing him in an elegant robe, they sent him back to Pilate.
That day Herod and Pilate became friends with each other; previously they had been enemies.
