Messiah massacre[edit]

From list of messiah claimants:

"Egyptian Prophet", c.55, (an allusion to Moses), with 30,000 unarmed Jews doing The Exodus reenactment massacred by Procurator Antonius Felix (JW2.13.5, JA20.8.6, Acts 21:38)

I expected some ellaboration on that here. --84.20.17.84 08:34, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

Josephus says:
Now when Felix was informed of these things, he ordered his soldiers to take their weapons, and came against them with a great number of horsemen and footmen from Jerusalem, and attacked the Egyptian and the people that were with him. He also slew four hundred of them, and took two hundred alive. But the Egyptian himself escaped out of the fight, but did not appear any more.

DISCREPENCY PROBLEM 1. from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drusilla_(daughter_of_Agrippa_I) "Josephus states that they had a son named Marcus Antonius Agrippa and a daughter Antonia Clementiana. Their son perished together with his mother, Drusilla, in Mount Vesuvius in 79." [note 7: "Mentioned in Josephus, Jewish Antiquities, xx.7.2, and in a lost section of the work."] 2. from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Vesuvius "Along with Pliny the Elder, the only other noble casualties of the eruption to be known by name were Agrippa (a son of the Jewish princess Drusilla and the procurator Antonius Felix) and his wife." [note 29 "Mentioned in Josephus, Jewish Antiquities, xx.7.2, and in a lost section of the work."] 3. from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antonius_Felix "Felix and the Judean Drusilla, had a son, Marcus Antonius Agrippa, who died along with his [whose?] wife in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius." [this one has no documentation]

So who was it that died? Agrippa and his mother, Agrippa and his wife, or was it possibly all three of them? Wawruckhemmett (talk) 20:32, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Marriage to Drusilla[edit]

Does someone has a reference identifier regarding the entry about the date for the marriage between Felix and Drusilla (indicated as 53 AD) and their divorce (indicated as 54-56 AD)? If so, maybe the reference should be added -- especially if there is a potential discrepency as noted by another (directly above). Tesseract501 (talk) 17:43, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
