Empathy for the Wicked: Herodias
As we continue our "Empathy for the Wicked" series where we explore the villains of the Bible to learn more about what caused them to gain such a reputation and how we can learn from their downfalls. This week we explore Herodias: A princess of Judea briefly mentioned in Matthew and Mark as the woman who sealed the fate of John the Baptist. What caused her to live the life she did? What wounds did she bear and what can we learn about ourselves when we find empathy for the wicked?
