(hih roh' dih uhn) Member of an aristocratic Jewish group who favored the policies of Herod Antipas and thus supported the Roman government. Apparently they lived in Galilee, where Antipas ruled, and joined the Jerusalem religious authorities in opposing Jesus. They tried to trap Jesus into denying responsibility for Roman taxes (Matthew 22:15-22; Mark 12:13-17 ). Their plots began the road to Jesus' crucifixion (Mark 3:6 ). See Herod .
