ADDITIONAL READING AND LINKS

  • The Jewish historian Josephus recorded a version of the story (found in Acts 12:20–24) in which Herod Agrippa I was stricken by a fatal disease after his flatterers addressed him as a god. He died after five days of excruciating pain, acknowledging before his death that the acclamation was false and accepting his fate. See Antiquities of the Jews 19:8:2.
  • While testifying before the Areopagus in Athens, Paul quoted the Greek poet Aratus (310–245 ʙ.ᴄ.) and affirmed that “we are also [God’s] offspring” (Acts 17:28–29). Read Phaenomena, the poem from which Paul quoted.
