June 21, 2013

Yesterday, we read of Drusilla, wife of Azizus who left him for Festus. Later, she left Festus and married Felix. Felix was the governor before whom Paul was tried. His successor was none other than Festus, Drusilla’s 2nd husband.

Today I read of Drusilla’s brother and sister.

Acts 25:13, “Now after an interval of some days, Agrippa the king and Bernice arrived at Caesarea to pay their respects to Festus [to welcome him and wish him well].”

“King Agrippa – great grandson of Herod the great, and Drusilla’s brother, (see Ch 24:24). On his father’s awful death (Ch 12:23), being thought too young (17) to succeed, Judea was attached to the province of Syria. Four years later, on the death of his uncle Herod, he was made king of the northern principalities of Chalcis, and afterwards got Batanea, Iturea, Trachonitis, Abilene, Galilee, and Perea, with the title of king…Bernice – his sister. She was married to her uncle Herod, king of Chalcis, on whose death she lived with her brother Agrippa – not without suspicion of incestuous intercourse, which her subsequent licentious life tended to confirm.” Critical and Explanatory Commentary, Vol. II

If Bernice lived today she would probably have her own reality show!
