Vv8 Herod a Hasmonean, suppressed his conscience. A morbid curiosity, a deafining silence. Herod had knowledge of God but he continued to reject. It is quite sobering to see ppl reject the gospel over and over.
Vv18 a perverted sense of justice. Vv21 would you follow the crowd? Do not think like the world.
2 Cor 5:21
