    Ahab and Queen Jezebel) had married Jehoram (son of Judah’s King Jehoshaphat) to cement a treaty (2 Chronicles 18:1). Athaliah and Jehoram’s son was Ahaziah. Ahaziah became the 6th king of Judah and ruled for one year. Elisha anointed Jehu, an army commander, as the new king of Israel.

When King Ahaziah was killed, one of his sons should have become King of Judah. Instead, Ahaziah’s mother decided that she should be queen. She tried to kill all of her own children and grandchildren so that they would not take the crown away from her. She almost succeeded in killing them all. You might remember how God had promised King David, years before that his descendant (later revealed as Jesus Christ) would someday save the world.

We learn that he had two very different bloodlines linked. Good and Evil - the house of David, Jehoshaphat and Jehoram (father and son) were idol…

Shylock is created using the contemporary and prejudiced views of the audience; this image “becomes the stereotype and historical image of a Jew” (1). Although Shylock is a very strong adoption of the traditional image of the Jew, Ray points out…
