Other people will tell you with the same amount of sincerity that all the ancient Egyptians were black and the only reason that there are white people in Egypt today is because the  Muslims and Christians who came in later kicked all the black people out. Israeli archaeologist Ehud Netzer has spent the past half century searching for the real Herod, as he is portrayed not in words but in stone.
For a thousand years, music and ceremony have celebrated the Christian Gospel in Westminster Abbey in London. The 15th-century church of Rodel on the Isle of Lewis, built for the warlike chiefs of the MacLeods, towers over the sea lochs of Scotland's Outer Hebrides.
A life-size statue of King James dominates the most lavish room of this treasure-encrusted palace at Hatfield, north of London.
Photographer Jim Richardson digitally "stitched" this panoramic image together from more than 12 individual images. Fueled by the Bible-led ideals of the Reformation, 17th-century Puritans loathed nothing more than the grandeur of "pomp-fed prelates" and other religious trappings for which there was no scriptural basis.
A Pastoral LifeThe circuit-riding Baptist minister Rome Wager breaks a horse on ranch land he leases at the southern end of the Jicarilla Apache Reservation in northern New Mexico.

Devoted to the BookOn Bobo Hill outside Kingston, Jamaica, Rastafarians chant psalms from the King James Bible as they do every morning, facing east into the early sun.
Devoted to the BookNot Christian, but believing in the divinity of Haile Selassie, the last emperor of Ethiopia, Rastafarians follow a strict regimen modeled on Old Testament laws. It's a midweek Prayer Meeting in the Church of Scotland at Leurbost on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. The fallow deer in the park at Knole, Kent, have looked down at the world with long-nosed lordliness since the days of King James. An actress in period dress glides across the imported Italian marble floor of the Marble Hall of Hatfield House, north of London.
Although James I never slept at Knole House in Kent, this bed in the ancestral home of the Sackvilles is called the King's Bed. Some translators of the King James Bible did research at Merton College Library at Oxford University, a world-class research facility since 1589. Parishioners worshipped in Holy Trinity Church in Goodramgate, York, for some 500 years before they heard the Scriptures in English. The country is living up to its melting pot reputation as American faces become less homogenous and more diverse, a phenomenon that renowned photographer and portrait artist Martin Schoeller captured for the October 125th anniversary issue of National Geographic magazine. The images, which are coupled with the individual's "self ID" and the box he or she checked to indicate race as specified on the 2000 and 2010 census, are a striking reminder of Americans' complex cultural and racial origins. Schoeller's photographs capture "the changing face of America," a trend that is no doubt picking up speed with the increase of both interracial marriages and the births of biracial babies. On playgrounds and college campuses, you’ll find such homespun terms as Blackanese, Filatino, Chicanese, and Korgentinian. Tracey Williams Bautista says her seven-year-old son, Yoel Chac Bautista, identifies himself as black when he’s with her, his African-American parent. In September 2009, Photo of the Day featured images from National Geographic magazine.A feeding party streams back to shore after several days at sea.

The rising sun spotlights the courtship display of a greater bird of paradise on Wokam Island, south of New Guinea.
The first clear ice of fall on an Alaskan lake captures methane that all summer long has bubbled from the bottom mud.
The living crown (this one atop the General Sherman, at center) was once a distant mystery.
Murdered, then buried together in a grave festooned with antlers, two women from a Mesolithic cemetery on Teviec Island in Brittany, France, pay witness to a violent age.
Special muscles let the King of Saxony bird of paradise swing each antenna-like head feather through a 180-degree arc during courtship. One summer evening Li was snapping shots of clouds from his Beijing rooftop when lightning (at center left) lit up this towering thunderhead.
Resolute and anchored in their remote habitat, the giant sequoias withstand the weight of winter snow and many other stresses. Ever mindful not to disturb baby birds, Franceski crawled through goose poop to photograph this flapping gosling at a pond on Long Island, New York.
Brittle shale expands and cracks when brought up in a drill core from thousands of feet below.
A stone mound, or ovoo, in Mongolia marks a place where spirits are said to have appeared; respectful travelers circle it three times. If you ask what happened to the blacks who were displaced by the whites, they don't always have an answer, though the most amusing ones I've heard were that they were all sold as slaves to other countries or even that they were all killed, every single last one of them down to the lowliest babe, and that explains why nobody understands "the real truth about ancient Egypt." More bigotry.
This is Herodium, one of the grand architectural creations of Herod the Great, King of Judaea, who raised a low knoll into a towering memorial of snowy stonework and surrounded it with pleasure palaces, splashing pools, and terraced gardens.
He has excavated many of Herod's major building sites throughout the Holy Land, exploring the palaces where the king lived, the fortresses where he fought, the landscapes where he felt most at home. As the place where generations of English kings and queens have been married, crowned, and buried, this great medieval building embodied King James's cherished fusion of glory and regal authority—a visual and aural richness of which the new Bible was to be an integral part.
Nothing in early modern Britain, from its cities to its remotest corners, was more political than religion. But the English church, with the King James Bible at its core, always loved ceremony as much as the word. Built in 1611 as a retreat for King James, it was designed in traditional medieval style but with luxurious 17th-century touches for King James, who aimed to be a modern monarch: paintings in gilded frames on the ceiling, rich wooden trim, and portraits on the walls.
Thomas Sackville, first Earl of Dorset, converted the former medieval bishop's palace into a Renaissance mansion and deer hunting park for the King's pleasure.
King James translator Henry Savile was instrumental in upgrading the library and introduced to England the European method of shelving books with spines facing outward.
Census presented the question of race differently, allowing respondents the option of selecting more than one racial category, with nearly 7 million Americans identifying as members of two or more races. When Joshua Ahsoak, 34, attended college, his heritage of Inupiat (Eskimo) and midwestern Jewish earned him the moniker Juskimo, a term he still uses to describe himself (a practicing Jew who breaks kosher dietary laws not for bacon but for walrus and seal meat).
Their orange markings, long, slender bills, and hefty, three-foot-long bodies distinguish them as king penguins.
The shrinking of territories due to sea-level rise may have brought neighboring populations into conflict.

The effect, says the 31-year-old photojournalist, reminded him of a mushroom cloud from a nuclear explosion. People across Asia believe that spirits associated with Baikal live in this rocky outcropping on Olkhon Island, destination of a steady stream of pilgrims. Males brush the dozen stiff feather shafts on their lower torsos against females’ faces before mating.
An astute and generous ruler, a brilliant general, and one of the most imaginative and energetic builders of the ancient world, Herod guided his kingdom to new prosperity and power.
Of Herod's many imaginative building projects, Herodium was the only one that bore his name, and was perhaps the closest to his heart. Hatfield House was completed by Robert Cecil, the monarch's loyal secretary, in 1611 as the King James Bible came off the presses. The grandeur of this aristocratic style seeped into every corner of King James's England—and into the language used by the translators of his Bible. The size made it easier to smuggle this edition into England, where church and state law forbade the translation because of its democratic tone. The 2010 census included changes to more clearly distinguish Hispanic ethnicity as not being a race, with data revealing that whites would no longer be the majority in the country by 2043. Each male clears a patch of forest floor several feet across, creating a stage where he performs a bizarre dance: hopping, prancing sideways, curtsying, and bobbing his head.
The white specks are salt crystals—residue from the ancient sea where the shale formed.
Yet today he is best known as the sly and murderous monarch of Matthew's Gospel, who slaughtered every male infant in Bethlehem in an unsuccessful attempt to kill the newborn Jesus, the prophesied King of the Jews.
It was here, at the end of his daring and bloodstained career, that he was laid to rest in a noble mausoleum.
It was an age in which social hierarchy was considered a reflection of the divine order of the universe. To fracture shale underground and collect the gas trapped in its pores, gas companies pump millions of gallons of fracking fluids down a well. During the Middle Ages he became an image of the Antichrist: Illuminated manuscripts and Gothic gargoyles show him tearing his beard in mad fury and brandishing his sword at the luckless infants, with Satan whispering in his ear.
Scholars estimate that more than 90 percent of the King James New Testament is directly influenced by his work. Herod is almost certainly innocent of this crime, of which there is no report apart from Matthew's account. But children he certainly slew, including three of his own sons, along with his wife, his mother-in-law, and numerous other members of his court.
Throughout his life, he blended creativity and cruelty, harmony and chaos, in ways that challenge the modern imagination.
