With surprisingly graphic language, the Adult Sabbath School Study Guide expresses the partnership of Ahab and Jezebel as “a marriage made in hell! When you take one weak-willed king and add to him a power-hungry and conniving woman, the result will not be good.” The Bible joins in this negative assessment, saying that Ahab “did more evil in the eyes of the LORD than any of those before him” (1 Kings 16:20). Is there anything we can learn from this couple?
