Herod has a change of mind about the succession.
According to the final

Judah, Idumea and Samaria, while Antipas would rule Galilee and Perea with the
lesser title of tetrarch.
After Herod's death Judah came under direct
Archelaus is deemed incompetent by Augustus and replaced with a prefect.
Antipas goes on to govern Galilee and Perea for forty-two years.
These territories are separated by the region of the Decapolis, with
Galilee to the north and Perea to the south.
Threats to political
stability are ongoing when Antipas takes office.
While Antipas is making his case to Augustus in Rome,
dissidents led by Judas son of Hezekiah (Ezekias, in the Septuagint) attacks
the palace of
Sepphoris in Galilee,
seizing weapons with which they terrorize locals.
In a counterattack
ordered by Quinctilius Varus, Roman governor of
Syria, Sepphoris was
destroyed by fire and its inhabitants sold off as slaves.
Herod Antipater or Antipas built
Tiberias, modeled on a Greek city, on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee
with baths, a stadium,
a royal palace and
a sanctuary for prayer.
Antipas also rebuilt and fortified Sepphoris, while adding a wall to
Betharamphtha in Perea.
An ancient route linking Sepphoris to Legio,
and further south to Samaria-Sebastia, was paved by the Romans at this time.
At the time of Jesus of Nazareth,
Sepphoris was a large settlement.

This prompts a wider,
large-scale rebellion and the Roman military garrison of Judaea is quickly
overrun by the Zealots, while the pro-Roman king Agrippa II, together with
Roman officials, flee Jerusalem.
Confrontation between the
and the mainly Zealot factions of the Northern Revolt under the command of
Yohanan ben Levi and Simon bar Kokhba,
erupts into bloody violence.
Idumeans enter Jerusalem fighting on the side of the Zealots they kill the
former High Priest, Ananus ben Ananus - the man who ordered the execution by
stoning of James the
brother of Jesus.
Simon Bar Giora, commanding 15,000 troops, is
then invited into Jerusalem by the remaining Sadducee leaders to stand against
the Zealots, and quickly takes control over much of the city.
Bitter infighting continues between the factions of Simon Bar Giora and Yohanan
ben Levi and Simon bar Kokhba.
Roman forces led by Titus besiege Jerusalem.
The first two walls of
Jerusalem are breached within three weeks, but
a stubborn rebel standoff
prevents the Roman Army from breaking the third and thickest wall.
Following a brutal seven-month siege, during which Zealot infighting
results in burning of the entire food supplies of the city, the Romans finally
succeed in breaching the defenses of the weakened Hebrew forces.

Saul of Tarsus is
born of wealthy Hebrew parents engaged in trade in the first decade of the
common era at Tarsus in Cilicia.
Tarsus - a junction point of land and
sea routes connecting the Cilician plain (today called Çukurova),
central Anatolia and the Mediterranean sea - has long been an important stop
for traders and a focal point of many civilizations for the past 6000 years,
much like Yemen.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a new
philosophical ideology to which its author adheres. The author feels that the
falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace
unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done
purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish
to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance
occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious
beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the
founding of a mystery school aptly named The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason
which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no
church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to
develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit
of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that
has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in
America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones
violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is
already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control
the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world
banking system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military
entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the
elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems.
Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at
the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined
precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has
garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the
populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which
have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media
psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family
and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
