The Massacre of the Innocents, Part Three

When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with what he had learned from the Magi.
   This confused the general reader, who thought, “Hang on, Part Two mentioned the death of Herod: what’s going on? Furthermore, why didn’t the Angel who initially communicated with the Magi just tell them to avoid Herod? Then all of those baby boys would not have been so senselessly massacred.” But the Angel hadn’t, and lots of baby boys were unnecessarily slaughtered through a simple lack of Godly foresight. Or they would have been, had Herod not died in 4BC.

This is the word of the Lord.

Response: Is it really?
