Historical Setting King Herod & Herodian EconomyKing Herod Antipater also known by his nickname ‘Antipas’, ruled from 4 BCE – 39 CE and is best known today for accounts in the New Testament Bible of his role in events that led to the executions of John the Baptist and Jesus of Nazareth. The economy of first century Israel was supported by three key segments: agriculture of olives, figs, grains, dates, and vineyards; trade fostered by Israel’s key location on the Mediterranean Sea; and large government building projects sponsored by King Herod. Everyday Cooking & EatingThe woman’s daily job included preparing food for her family – for example, they would grind grain, bake bread, milk the animals, and make cheese. Most foods were boiled or stewed in a pot such as this one, and seasoned with salt, onions, garlic, cumin, coriander, mint, dill, and mustard. Food was sweetened with wild honey or syrups from dates or grapes, was generally served in a common bowl and eaten by dipping in with the fingers.
