Overview

Christians and Biblical scholars know well that King Herod was the monarch responsible for the notorious Massacre of the Innocents, in which all male infants in Bethlehem were ruthlessly slaughtered, but in this documentary, filmmakers reveal another side of The Bible's greatest villain. A leader whose reputation was forever tainted in blood, Herod also happened to be an architectural genius whose imposing monuments may well be larger than any constructed before or since. Join Israeli archeologist Ehud Netzer on his decade-long search for King Herod's most personal creation - his own burial tomb. Detailed examinations of such well-known Herodian sites such as Caesarea, Masada, and Jerusalem's Second Temple reveal the remarkable architectural innovation of a man who would see an entire generation wiped out in hopes of killing the baby Jesus.
