One year after the birth of Christ, Herod the Great had died,] and Caesar, not content with deposing his son and successor, Archelaus, struck the people of Jerusalem in a manner that touched their pride keenly. He reduced Judea to a Roman province, and annexed it to Syria. So, instead of a king ruling royally from the palace left by Herod on Mount Zion, the City fell into the hands of an officer of the second grade, who was called procurator, and who communicated with the court in Rome through the Legate of Syria, living in Antioch. TO make the hurt more painful, the procurator was not permitted to establish himself in Jerusalem; Caesarea was his seat of government.
