Herod, the Original Grinch
Today, we conclude our study of Christmas characters as we learn about Herod, a man who literally tried to kill Christmas. It doesn't seem right to talk about this in the midst of our celebration of Christmas. It's a sad story we'd rather forget, but nevertheless, we need to understand what's behind it. Herod was a real person, called Herod the Great, but as we see, he had a wicked and very small heart. I hope none of us would have a heart that is too small for the Lord Jesus.
