Synopsis: Herod the Great is famous for expanding the second temple, but he had also built pagan temples for Augustus.

According to the ancient historian, Josephus Flavius, Herod built three temples for the Romans. One in Caesarea Maritima, one in Samaria, but the third one could not be identified for a long time.

Where is the missing temple, and did archaeologists finally find it at the site of Horvat Omrit? Why did Herod build it in the first place? And how does this all point to and explain Herod’s desire to kill Jesus?
