Queen Jezebel: The Making and Breaking of the Bible’s Greatest Villain
Hosted By: Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS)
Jezebel is a woman with a reputation, yet her biblical story does not support the reputation she has earned. In this class we will examine the threat posed by—and the power wielded by—Queen Jezebel; how her story reflects biblical anxieties towards women; and why Jezebel has intrigued and terrified readers for generations.
This event is part of the online JTS series, Hidden Histories and Untold Stories, where faculty uncover the hidden context around biblical figures and important eras in Jewish history.
