A.D. The Bible Continues With Caligula’s Demands. Who Was This Crazy And Cruel Emperor?

A.D. The Bible Continues episode nine airs this Sunday. We’ll see Saul requesting forgiveness from Peter. Then, Peter remembers his old faults and how Jesus forgave him too.

Saul will be in danger because of his conversion. In fact, nobody was save in that Jerusalem. People had their own troubles and other tribulations which arrived from Rome. In episode nine Emperor Caligula makes a demand that his statue be placed in the temple, yet Pilate and Caiaphas know this will stir up a rebellion.

Who was Emperor Caligula? Crazy and cruel are usually written before his name.

Caligula was a member of the house of rulers conventionally known as the Julio-Claudian dynasty. He ruled from AD 37 to AD 41.

As a child, Caligula was one of Rome’s most beloved public figures while accompanying his father, Germanicus, during his campaigns in Germania.

When Germanicus died, his wife Agrippina the Elder returned to Rome with her six children. There, she became entangled in bitter disputes with Emperor Tiberius. The conflict eventually led to the destruction of her family, with Caligula as the only male survivor. How did he feel? Did these tragic events affect his personality? For sure!

With the death of Tiberius in AD 37, Caligula succeeded his grand uncle as emperor.

After this, the sources focus on his cruelty, extravagance, and perversity, presenting him as an insane despot.

Caligula directed much of his attention to ambitious construction projects and luxurious residences for himself. The whole empire should be adorned with his portraits, placed in the most important buildings as the temple of Jerusalem. We’ll see the reaction of the Jews!

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
