The first of Jesus' disciples in martyred and Peter is imprisoned. I love how Peter thought it was a vision and then Rhoda leaves him at the door to tell the others who don't believe him. Can you imagine the scene? In some ways it had to be funny and in so many ways it had to energize the faith of the believers.
Herod's end is another great reminder of the dangers of pride. We might not be eaten by worms in the way he was, but we are definitely "damaged" in other ways when we let pride rule in our lives.
