(16) For a thorough argument for this claim, see Harold Hoehner, Herod Antipas
(London: Cambridge University Press, 1972), 133-6.
When therefore Salome had danced before Herod Antipas
, and after he had promised to grant her a wish even to relegating to her half of his kingdom, the girl, at her mother's insistence, demanded the head of John the Baptist (Mk 6:28-29).
We know that Herod Antipas
, one of the three sons of Herod the Great, had hoped to succeed his father as King of the Jews, but the Roman Emperor Augustus decided otherwise.
Wilde follows his sources in setting Salome in the palace of "Herod Antipas

' efforts at building Sepphoris and Tiberias contributed significantly to an emerging market economy in first-century Palestine: The changes in the economic conditions involved in the building of two new centers such as Sepphoris and Tiberias should not be underestimated, since these projects involved demand for labor, materials, development of roads, water systems, and the introduction of some skilled craftsmen into the region.

But he argues that there is little historical reliability to Herod Antipas
's involvement in Jesus' trial; "the pericope of Luke 23:6-12 is determined by the scriptural support and is to be seen as an illustration of Ps 2:1 f., `Why do the nations conspire ...?'" (303-4).
The renewal of the Covenant could hardly be a resigned acceptance of a status quo dominated by the quasi-messianic Herod Antipas
. Instead it was a radical statement that the true children of Abraham were those who deferred to the prophets and sought justice, defended the oppressed, and confronted the structures of corruption.
