CORRUPTING WOMEN: AHAB’S WIFE
In 1 Kings 16:31, Israel’s King Ahab marries Jezebel, the daughter of the king of the Sidonians, a nation of Baal worshippers. Needless to say, Ahab made a huge mistake! Jezebel illustrates a woman who corrupts others, leading her husband and others astray (cf. 1 Kings 21:25). She is a leading contender for the greatest of the not-so-greats; in fact, she just may be the worst “Bad Babe of the Bible”!
