IN WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY
"Jezebel; Sinful Seductress or Savvy Stateswoman?"
Alternatively described as devious, evil-personified, and a whore - her name is literally synonymous with shameful wickedness in women. But a deep dive into the context and culture of this Phoenician princess - that history has loved to hate - might just unearth another story.

Jezebel was a zealot for her faith tradition and wielded power from her throne. So, was she really a bad-to-the-bone temptress or was it her politics that got her into so much trouble?

Join us today and find out!
