King Herod, the Baby Jesus and Richard Dawkins the Atheist
Matthew 2 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem2 and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.”
3 When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.4 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.5 “In Bethlehem in Judea,” they replied, “for this is what the prophet has written:
6 “‘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.’”
7 Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared.8 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him.” Why did King Herod really want to see Jesus? Love Him? Worship Him? Protect Him? Kill Him? What would Richard Dawkins recommend to King Herod about this troublesome child? NARAL attacked a Super Bowl advertisement that "Humanized a child in the womb". What would be the suggestions of NARAL to King Herod? See my books for more.
