Prince Antipas’ new wife used her influence to ensure that Jesus lost his position in about 32 AD. The story that comprises the Passion narrative in the Gospel texts
is passed down in the Old Testament as a complete account: Jesus’ conflict with the Jews and his condemnation for blasphemy.
The narrative about Naboth’s vineyard, (1 Kings 21) reflects the conflict between Antipas’ new wife and the governor Jesus. The power-hungry Herodias (= Jezebel) envied the governor Jesus his influence over Antipas (= Ahab) and succeeded in having Naboth (= Jesus) condemned and executed.
Jesus was able to flee to exile in Tyre, but it was the end of his political career: Mark 7:24-30 par. In the New Testament narrative in Mark and Matthew, the conflict between Herodias and Jesus is transmuted into a discussion about whether Jesus, now living in Tyre, was permitted to use his healing power to help a non-Jewish woman (such as Herodias) and her daughter.
The two solutions for a Galilean identity developed gradually and existed alongside each other. Antipas obviously hesitated
to favour one of the solutions over the other. On the one hand, the monarchist model strengthened his position in the political system; on the other hand, the Jews had a strong lobby and gave important support for his rule.
A decision was only reached when Antipas married his sister-in-law Herodias, in approx. 31 AD. Herodias, a granddaughter of Herod, was aware of the power balance; she saw the governor Jesus as a competitor and urged Antipas to dismiss him. Jesus then went into exile in Tyre in 32 AD.
