Why is all the information here based on Acts? Shouldn't we be using Josephus? john k 20:05, 21 April 2006 (UTC)
Regardless of one's religious beliefs, the Bible is of no lesser historical value than the writings of Josephus. Josephus himself cited scripture as historically reliable. Claycup (talk) 04:13, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
King of Iudaea?
The article claims that Herod Agrippa II was appointed King of Iudaea in 53, which is simply incorrect. He never had any control over the Roman province of Iudaea; rather, as the article states, from 53 he was in charge of his great-uncle Philip's former territories which were all located in the north-eastern part of Palestine. The last Herodian king of Iudaea was in fact Agrippa II's father, Agrippa I, who is the subject of a 1990 book by D. R. Schwartz entitled Agrippa I: The Last King of Judea. I've amended the article accordingly.
I have have made some minor changes to the second paragraph of this section to make the sentences easier to read, using shorter alternative synonyms and moving verbs to make the sentence flow.StanleyA1 (talk) 12:29, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
"He lived on terms of intimacy with the historian Josephus, having supplied him with information for his history, Antiquities of the Jews. Josephus preserved two of the letters he received from him." I do not think this is what William Whiston meant in his footnote when he pointed at "the great intimacy he [Josephus] had with Agrippa junior". Modified accordingly.

Discrepency regarding Date with Paul
This document indicates that the date when Agrippa II and Bernice met with Paul was about 59 AD. This contridicts the date referenced on the Bernice article (60 AD). Antonius (Claudius) Feilx was still Roman Procurator in 59 AD. Porcius Festus was from 60-62AD, the meeting with Paul is probably 60 AD -- since Festus was procurator during the meeting with Agrippa II. Tesseract501 (talk) 18:15, 1 October 2013 (UTC)
