Is Jezebel the Baddest of the Bad Girls of the Bible?

Is Jezebel the Baddest of the Bad Girls of the Bible? June 11, 2013


Not long ago on Facebook, a fellow Unitarian Universalist minister, as I recall, mentioned visiting a new city and seeing announcements for worship services for the two most liberal congregations. The UU church advertised the sermon title as “On Consciousness,” while the progressive Christian congregation had a sermon advertised as “Bad Girls of the Bible.” The minister asked, “Which one would you attend?”

Now, I actually would have been interested in that reflection on consciousness. But I take the colleague’s meaning. And the more I thought about it, the more I thought there’s something for religious liberals, for Unitarian Universalists, in going back and looking at who is thought to be a bad girl in the Bible. Eve? Delilah? Mary Magdalene? How about Jezebel?
