    Contributed by W Pittendreigh on Dec 22, 2003
    based on 50 ratings

    Christmas Eve service, 2003. Herod wanted to be in control and lost the opportunity to know Jesus personally. Do we want to be in control so much that we can’t submit to Christ?

    Herod didn’t know who he was. The King of Judea, the Great Herod, had no clue as to who this little baby boy was. Herod thought this baby was a threat. Matthew’s Gospel says that when Herod heard about the Baby Jesus from the Wise Men, he was greatly distressed. Greatly distressed? That is more
