Innocents, Massacre of, by Herod

(Matthew 2:16). It has been thought strange that Josephus should not mention this atrocity (see Volborth, Veram esse Infanticidii Bethlehem. hait. G ttingen, 1788); but it was one only, and that a local one, of his many acts of tyranny and cruelty. (See HEROD THE GREAT).
