History
Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus, popularly known simply as Tiberius, was the Roman emperor at the time of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Tiberius reigned for 23 years, from 14 to 37 A.D. By most accounts, Tiberius was not a sociable man. According to Suetonius (Emperor Hadrian's personal secretary) After briefly mentioning some of the successes of Tiberius, Suetionus goes into depth regarding his madness. He would have sex with people of all ages and sexes. He was very cruel to his subjects. He would arbitrarily have people executed, for crimes as harmless as speaking ill of Augustus. Suetonius describes one example of Tiberius' madness where Tiberius would force a subject to drink large quantities of wine. He would then have their genitals tied so tightly that they could not urinate.

Tiberius died of natural causes. Suetonius describes the sheer joy expressed by the Romans upon his death. He mentions people dancing in the streets. Upon his death, the Romans felt as though they emerged from a nightmare. Little did they know, but their nightmare was just beginning.

The Sea of Tiberius
Tiberias is a town on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee, Lower Galilee, Israel. It was named in honour of the emperor Tiberius. Tiberias was built at about AD 20 by Herod Antipas, the son of Herod the Great on the site of the destroyed village of Rakkat, and it became the capital of his realm in Galilee.

John 6:1 After these things Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias.

Sword of Tiberius
This detail (pictured on the left) of the tinned and gilded scabbard shows the Roman emperor Tiberius symbolically presenting his recent victories to his stepfather, the emperor Augustus. Augustus is semi-nude, and sits in the pose of Jupiter, flanked by Victory and Mars Ultor ('the Avenger'), while Tiberius, in military dress, presents Augustus with a statuette of Victory.

Jesus and the Tribute Penny
Matthew 22:17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt me, you hypocrites? Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

The Villa Jovis
"Villa of Jupiter" is a Roman palace on Capri built by emperor Tiberius who ruled from there between AD 27 and AD 37. It is the largest of the twelve Tiberian villas on Capri mentioned by Tacitus (Roman historian)
