Herod the Great - How Great?

Herod the Great is the subject of one of the largest exhibitions ever mounted by the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. We wanted to find out more about this brutal tyrant (according to New Testament accounts) so we called up Paul Maier. Prof. Maier is a professor of Ancient History at Western Michigan University, and thoroughly familiar with Herod after re-translating the largest source of information about Herod, the ancient historian Josephus Flavius.
