Antipatris

ANTIPATRIS (ăn-tĭp'a-trĭs, Gr. antipatris, belonging to Antipater). A city built (or rebuilt) by Herod the Great and named after his father Antipater. It lay on the road between Jerusalem and Caesarea. There is only one reference to it in Scripture, when Paul was taken following his arrest in Jerusalem from that city to Caesarea (Acts.23.31). It marked the NW limit of Judea.
