Jerusalem Perspective Article That Small-fry Herod Antipas
(To the observation in this article that "fox" indicates not a
clever or crafty person but an inferior one, I would also point to
Lamentation 5, especially v. 18 [the NRSV translates with
"jackal" but the Greek word in the LXX is the same word used
in the Greek of Luke]. In a lament over Jerusalem like Jesus, the
"foxes" prowl over Jerusalem to its shame.
