    away from Jezebel’s manhunt. Ahab and Jezebel, specifically Jezebel, was oppressing the people under her reign by forcing idolatry into their life’s.

    Idolatry is the worship of an inanimate object meant to represent a god. In the past humans worshipped idols to receive a bountiful harvest, a successful childbirth, or pleasant weather. Later, society began to evolve from these asinine rituals into a more developed practice; they shifted their outlook to a more human-centered approach called humanism.

    the practices of the exiles, mainly that they hadn’t adhered to the traditions. They believed that Yahweh dwelt in His land, as they perceived the religion as location based (Lecture 5 pt. 3 slide 6). Therefore, they continued to offer sacrifices to Yahweh in the proper places, even though the temple was destroyed. However, they probably also worshipped other gods. Since the Deuteronomist priests were sent into exile, they believed that the commands that they had decreed were disproven (Lecture…

    Idolatry By Ezekiel

    • 303 Words
    • 2 Pages

    Idolatry became very problematic in the Old Testament especially in Israel. Idolatry is defined as worshiping false gods. Romans 1:21 described it as the people “[Forsaking] god and sank into ignorance and moral corruption.” God gave us a set of rules known as the Ten Commandments, the first one states that “you shall have no other gods before [him]” (Exodus 20:3).
