Out of our Top 10 Podcast of the Bible and Coffee, we include Jezebel one of our all-time favorite Crazy Ladies. Even if you are not familiar with the actual story of Jezebel you do understand that you do not want to ever be labeled with that name ” Jezebel.”
Who is Jezebel?
Who is the woman that we labeled as crazy? Jezebel is first mentioned in 1 Kings 16:31. She marries Ahab. She then kills God’s prophets in 1 Kings 18:4. Just a couple of chapters over she orders Naboths death in 1 kings 21:8-10. This crazy woman Jezebel uses witchcraft in 2 kings 9:22. However, in the end, she ends up being eaten by the dogs 2 Kings 9:35.
There are so many things that Amy and I discuss with the storyline of Jezebel. While we want to hide our crazy, Jezebel is right there out in the open for all the world to see!
What does the New Testament say about Jezebel?
The book of Revelation in Chapters 2:20-21 gives plenty of references to the character traits behind Jezebel. She is listed as a prophetess, a false teacher, an immoral woman, and an Idol worshiper.
But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. I gave her time to repent, and she does not want to repent of her sexual immorality. Revelation 2:20-21 NASB
Amy and I discuss the character traits of Jezebel and how we try to hide our own crazy!
