Luke 23:7

Context
23:7 When 1  he learned that he was from Herod’s jurisdiction, 2  he sent him over to Herod, 3  who also happened to be in Jerusalem 4  at that time.

1 tn Here καί (kai) has not been translated because of differences between Greek and English style.

2 sn Learning that Jesus was from Galilee and therefore part of Herod’s jurisdiction, Pilate decided to rid himself of the problem by sending him to Herod.

3 sn Herod was Herod Antipas, son of Herod the Great. See the note on Herod in 3:1.

4 sn Herod would probably have come to Jerusalem for the feast, although his father was only half Jewish (Josephus, Ant. 14.15.2 [14.403]). Josephus does mention Herod’s presence in Jerusalem during a feast (Ant. 18.5.3 [18.122]).
