This is a 21 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – Evil Leaders of Israel – Ahab & Jezebel. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
King David had been absent from the scene of Hebrew history for about 135 years when King Ahab came to the throne. His great kingdom, enlarged and more richly endowed by his son Solomon, had been fractured into 2 weakened fragments. The southern kingdom of Judah was being ruled by his descendants. The northern kingdom of Israel suffered under a succession of wicked men at the helm.
Ahab is introduced to the pages of Scripture with these shocking words: “And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord more than all who were before him” (1 Kgs. 16:30). He had the dubious distinction of being the most wicked king who reigned over Israel up until his day. Ahab decided that he needed an alliance with this neighboring nation, so he made a treaty with the king of Phoenicia and sealed it by marrying his daughter. That is how Jezebel happened to move to Samaria.
Jezebel brought a religious fanaticism with her. She was headstrong, self-willed, domineering woman, and with a moral weakling for a husband, she had little trouble getting her way. She got him to build a house for Baal beside the palace in Samaria, as well as an idol of the fertility goddess Ashtoreth. Then she brought 450 prophets of Baal and 400 prophets of Ashtoreth from Phoenicia, housed them in the palace, and fed them in royal style. Their duties were to promote the worship of Baal and Ashtoreth throughout the land.
It was Elijah was the first to oppose her, but the nation grew more wicked. Their deeds finally ended in a violent death for each.
The presentation covers the following:
