And when Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad; because there was very desirous to see him, having heard many things of him; and hoped to have seen some miracle done by him. Luke 23: 8.
One thing is what you really are, and another thing is that you talk to people.
Herod Roman governor responsible for religious issues of Palestinian, heard a lot about Jesus by others, for the fame of Jesus was big for his speeches and actions, but of course there was also some news in these exaggerations and many misunderstandings.
The text says that Herod longed to know Jesus and was not to hurt him, because he says that when he saw Jesus rejoiced greatly.
Herod had the impression as many today even though Jesus always had the obligation to perform miracles. He asked Jesus, but Jesus remained silent. The greatest miracle of Jesus is to give us salvation, for that is how we attain eternal life. He made some raised Lazarus, but Lazarus died again in old age, but if he gives us salvation will never die.
Herod after the interview it returns to Pilate and Pilate declares that Herod had not found any error that Jesus deserved to die crucified.
One thing is certain and we must take into account who goes to meet Jesus face to face, never the same person, because eye contact with Christ's blessing and joy to all men, and Herod had that privilege.
If you have heard it from other people about Christ and also want to have a personal meeting with him, the time is now the time is now, giving his life to it, because the Bible tells us: Behold, I stand at the door, and knock; If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:20
