Verse of the Day

Matthew 2:4-6
When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Messiah was to be born. “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written:

  “‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah,
     are by no means least among the rulers of Judah;
  for out of you will come a ruler
     who will shepherd my people Israel.’”
Herod believed enough in the prophecies to inquire where the Messiah would be born, but his intentions were not to know the Son of God. They were not honorable. Herod wanted to kill Jesus. Compromise and sin are very dangerous. Greed and the desire for power can be deadly. This ruler wanted to ensure his stronghold on the Jewish people. Therefore, he looked for a way to prevent the fulfillment of this prophecy.
