King Agrippa I
Extra-biblical sources cast King Agrippia I as a compassionate, kind leader, but the book of Acts portrays him as a heartless tyrant who brutally persecuted Christians. Which is true?

King Agrippa II's main projects were ornate buildings in various cities, especially Caesarea Phillippi, his capital. He was a boisterous king who had many drunken parties. Paul pleaded his case before Agrippa, who eventually released him unharmed.
