JEZEBEL, NABOTH & AMERICA
Chris discusses the story of a man named Naboth in the Old Testament who owned a certain vineyard. His vineyard was desired by the king, Ahab — yet Naboth refused to sell it. In response, the queen, Jezebel determined that she would obtain the property for her husband, by falsely accusing Naboth and having him put to death for a crime he did not commit. Once the murder is accomplished, Ahab goes to take possession of the land, but God sends a prophet to pronounce judgment on the king and queen for their crimes. The whole episode demonstrates the extreme abuse of power by corrupt government officials, who are later both put to death. But are there parallels in what we find happening in America today? Is our national identity being subjected to a series of false accusations towards the intention of plundering our entire country?
