Herod Agrippa

Acts records 18 speeches of Paul’s, the last three were delivered here in front of Roman officials. Paul was undoubtedly known by everyone, the most talked about prisoner at the time.

Herod Agrippa II was the last Herod to rule over Jerusalem and Palestine for Rome. Agrippa was involved with his sister, Bernice, choosing an incestuous relationship that was talked about in Rome. Agrippa did not turn to Jesus as he could have. He remained loyal to Rome until his death and was involved in the destruction of the temple in 70 AD.
