Herodias successfully plotted the death of John the Baptist. This biographical overview studies Herodias' role in New Testament history and her life as a Jewish aristocratic woman who moved in first century C.E. Roman circles. Herodias provides allusions, quotes, and lighthearted subtitles that command the attention of readers. Clearly organized and detailed, Herodias is ideal for undergraduate students and those interested in further biographical Bible study-both those with extensive Bible background and those recently introduced to the faith.Chapters are "Passages: The Road to Herodian Womanhood," "The Choice to Run with the Fox," "The Sound and the Fury. Part I: His Charge," "The Sound and the Fury. Part II: Her Rage," "Demoted by Matthew and Fired by Luke," "Writ Large by Mark," and "Life After the Banquet." Also included are an Introduction, "In the Lair of Antipas," an Epilogue, "Life After Death," and Appendices.
