Another of the Herod’s sends his henchmen to murder; to arrest the righteous and kill them. This Herod is the grandson of the Herod who slaughtered the innocent boys in Bethlehem. This Herod is also the nephew of the Herod who had John the Baptist beheaded. This Herod now orders the beheading of the apostle James, it was a prophetic death for Jesus prophesied that James would drink from such a cup. Then Peter was arrested with intention of beheading him too, so the church, rattled by James’ death, rallied in prayer.
