First, you should know that there is more than one Herod in the New Testament. I’ll let James Scott handle that lesson on the Herods in the Lightspeed Lab lesson gallery. We’ve still got most of the quiz ahead of us, so we can’t be getting sidetracked, now can we? So, yeah, the Herods descended from Esau, making the background of the Gospel even more interesting when it comes to who was in power and who hated whom. But all the same, I don’t hate you, so we’re good.
I do hate to tell you that we are halfway done with this class. Isn’t it sad? But we still have both easy and hard mode to keep up occupied afterwards, so there’s no need to panic. In fact, if you want to practice what you’ve learned so far, I’ll leave the option for you to quickly knock out the easy mode and continue this lesson where you left off.
