Herod was the King of the Jews and when the three wise men told him about the coming of Christ he ordered the Slaughter of the Innocents.
He didn’t ask Rome’s permission but just decided to Kill not only Jesus but everyone else who was a threat to his blood line without any trial.
This is what the Bible has to say on the subject on the
Massacre of the Innocents.
“When the Magi had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. Get up, he said, take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him. So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.” When Herod realised that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi. Then what was said through the prophet Jeremiah was fulfilled: “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.”
Let’s move on a few years Jesus was tried by Pontius Pilot
His first trial was by Annas and then the High Priest Caiaphas after being sent to him by Annas – Caiaphas’ father-in-law. This took place in the courtyard of the High Priest’s house near the temple precincts.
Next he was sent to the Roman governor, Pontius Pilate, in his palace within the walls of the city. Realising that Jesus was innocent he passed the buck to Herod, the puppet King, as Jesus was a Galilean and therefore under Herod’s jurisdiction.
So the next trial took place in Herod’s palace.
Unfortunately for the religious leaders the death sentence was permitted only with the permission of Pilate. This is a lie if Herod could Massacre the Innocents then his son could have stoned Jesus to death.
“Jesus was sent back to Pilate at his palace for the trial that would result in his crucifixion” this never happened. It is just the same as saying a Jew at the time of the Holocaust got a trial?
Jews didn’t get trials just crucified or gassed.
There is no record of this trial and the Romans would have had one.
You can’t have it both ways one story is wrong?
