Resumen

STARK, Trudie  y  VAN DEVENTER, Hans J.M.. The 'Jezebel spirit': A scholarly inquiry. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2009, vol.30, n.2, pp.68-76. ISSN 2074-7705.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v30i2.301.

Queen Jezebel is rightly recognised as one of the powerful women in the Old Testament. In the biblical text she is introduced as a 'foreign' queen and wife to Ahab, the 8th century king of the northern kingdom, Israel. This article examines some of the interpretations of this character in the church over the centuries. The focus falls on the latest development in this regard whereby, in some circles, the biblical character is linked to the existence of a 'Jezebel spirit' within the contemporary church. On the basis of a narratological reading of the Jezebel texts it is indicated that such an interpretation is unfounded and fails to take cognisance of developments in biblical interpretation related to literary understandings of the text.

Palabras clave : Old Testament; narrative; Jezebel; spirit; modern church.
