Nach Extra Credit Project

  1. 1. Jezebel
  2. 2. Family Daughter of the priest-king Ethbal, ruler of the coastal Phoenician cities of Tyre and Sidon. Married Achav.
  3. 3. why she was evil Jezebel was evil because, not only did she destroy any body who was in the way of her getting what she wanted (prophets of Jehu) but she also introduces avodah zarah to Achav and brought it to the people.
  4. 4. what she did 1) Elijah had the Baal priests slain after they had lost a contest with him to see which god would heed prayers to ignite a bull offering, Baal or Yahweh. When Jezebel heard of the slaughter, she angrily swore to have Elijah killed, forcing him to flee for his life (Kings 1 18:19–19:3) 2) Adjacent to Ahab's palace was a vineyard, which he coveted; it belonged to a commoner, Naboth of Jezreel (an ancient city at the foot of Mt. Gilboa, probably the site of the modern Israeli settlement of the same name). When Naboth refused to part with his vineyard (“the inheritance of my fathers”), Jezebel falsely charged him with blaspheming “God and the king,” which led to Naboth's death by stoning. ( Kings 1 21:5–16) These things and more led to her death
  5. 5. Her Downfall When jehu came to jezebel's palace after killing her relatives she was putting on makeup and jehu ordered her eunuchs (servants) to throw her out her window. When it was commanded that she be properly buried all they could find was her palms, her feat, her head and small parts of her body. The dogs had eaten her just as the prophesy stated.
