The last days of Herod are marked with rebellion. Even after his death, Herod Archelaus puts down a rebellion with three thousand causalities around the temple mount.

When it was time for Joseph and Mary to return from Egypt, their fear of Herod Archelaus was justified. Thus, they settled in Nazareth.

While the Greek education system of the day emphasized the gymnasium approach to learning, the Hebrew system placed significant emphasis on the memorization of the Torah and the books of the prophets. This filling of the word of God was tantamount in the education of youth.
In this episode, Jannel Heaston and Rose Wittenmeyer (founder of memorize by the book - https://bythebookthebible.com) discuss the Hebrew culture and education of the youth in the ancient days and the power of memorizing the word.8BC: Herod the Madman
