Herod Philip, Tetrarch of Batanea, 4 B.C. - 34 A.D.

Son of Herod the Great, Philip was educated with his older brothers, Archelaus and Antipas in Rome. He inherited the northern part of his father's kingdom (Iturea, Trachonitis, Batanea, Gaulanitis, and Auranitis). Augustus denied him the title king and gave him the title tetrarch. Philip was a peace-loving man and a good administrator. He was the first Jewish ruler to put his own portrait on coins. Herod Philip is named in Matthew 14:3, Mark 6:17-29, Luke 3:1, and Luke 3:19.
