As the ancient proverb says, you can’t tell the Herods apart without a scorecard. We get up to speed this week on all the different Herods mentioned in the Bible.

  • We seem to know when passages of the Bible were written. What are the ways we can find that information to begin with, and are some passages more accurately dated than others?

Finally, did Jesus predict Muhammad? Is that in the Bible?!
