Herod's Successors

After the death of Herod, his kingdom was divided between three of his sons: Archelaus received Judea and Samaria; Herod Antipas received Galilee and Perea, and Philip received Ituraea. Herod Antipas and Philip established their capitals, which they named in honour of Rome, at Tiberias (after Tiberius) and at Caesarea Philippi. Archelaus reigned in Jerusalem until the year 6 CE when he was deposed. Judea, along with Samaria, was placed under the rule of a Roman governor who was directly responsible to the emperor. The holder of this office from 26 to 36 was Pontius Pilate. The governor was supported by Roman troops and was based in Caesarea Maritima; but there was also a Roman headquarters (praetorium) in Jerusalem (Mark 15: 16 ).
