Celestial Commentary – Scene 4 – Herod [4/5]

Angel 1
There's that evil scheming black-hearted villain?! He's the reason I put in my application to become an angel of wrath and destruction!
Angel 2
He's a slimebag, if ever there was one...!
Angel 1
Power hungry.
Angel 2
Backstabbing.
Angel 1
Greedy.
Angel 2
Lying.
Angel 1
Murdering.
Angel 2
Stealing.
Angel 1
You remember his line... you know the “that I too may go and worship him” thing? I actually wanted to vomit. Grrr. How does he sleep at night?
Angel 2
I think he just wants control. His biggest fear is a rival King. He knows he's the most hated man in the country – did you know that he's actually left instructions that the day he dies, a whole bunch of popular guys, you know Rabbis and so-on, will be executed.
Angel 1
Why? That makes no sense?
Angel 2
Apparently he wants to make sure that there'll be people mourning when he's dead.
Angel 1
Filthy rotten scumbag.
Angel 2
Yeah – but he's not the only one. He's driven by his fear and his need to be in control. His position just gives him more opportunity to do evil...
Herod
