King Ahab was more evil than all of the kings before him.

Why?

Because he was just like us.  He approved of female authority.

 
 

Romans 12:2
   And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind

 
 

Acts 16:29-30
   Then he (the jailor) called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,
   And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

The jailor asked Paul and Silas what he must do for his own salvation.
He didn’t ask about anyone else’s salvation.

But Paul's and Silas’ response was:

Acts 16:31
   And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

The jailor’s family would be saved along with him – even though the jailor didn’t ask about them.

Genesis 7:1
   And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Again, the father of the family, Noah, was righteous before the Lord and thus had the legal right to bring all of his house to safety.

Fathers are expected to lead.

God knew Abraham would lead his family:

Genesis 18:19
   For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment;

Joshua made the decision for his family.

Joshua 24:15
   And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Caleb led his family to the promised land:
Deuteronomy 1:36
   Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him will I give the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his children, because he hath wholly followed the LORD.

1 Timothy 3:5
   (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

In contrast, fathers’ bad decisions can lead the entire family to hell.
Numbers 16:26-27,32-33
   And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye be consumed in all their sins.
   So they gat up from the tabernacle of Korah, Dathan, and Abiram, on every side: and Dathan and Abiram came out, and stood in the door of their tents, and their wives, and their sons, and their little children.
   …And the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed them up, and their houses, and all the men that appertained unto Korah, and all their goods.
   They, and all that appertained to them, went down alive into the pit, and the earth closed upon them: and they perished from among the congregation.

Generational curses:
Deuteronomy 5:9
   …I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me

 
     
 

But who is this King Ahab?

He was the most evil of all of the kings before him.

1 Kings 16:30
   And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him.

Why was his kingly leadership so wicked?

Because he submitted to female leadership, and thus set a precedent that subverted the legal ability that fathers have to lead their families to safety and salvation.

1 Kings 21:25
   But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up.

1 Kings 21:11
   And the men of his city, even the elders and the nobles who were the inhabitants in his city, did as Jezebel had sent unto them, and as it was written in the letters which she had sent unto them.

1 Kings 18:13
   …when Jezebel slew the prophets of the LORD…

Conspiring to steal land:
1 Kings 21:7-8,15
   And Jezebel his wife said unto him, Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel? arise, and eat bread, and let thine heart be merry: I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.
   So she wrote letters in Ahab's name, and sealed them with his seal…
   …Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite…

Ahab’s legacy continued, with female leadership from a mother:
2 Chronicles 22:3
   He also walked in the ways of the house of Ahab: for his mother was his counsellor to do wickedly.

 
     
 

What was the fate of this royal couple – Ahab and Jezebel?

Their enemy Elijah, a man of God, spoke the words which would give them the most ignominious end – eaten by dogs.

1 Kings 21:20,23-24
   And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy?  And he answered, I have found thee: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the LORD.
   …And of Jezebel also spake the LORD, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.
   Him that dieth of Ahab in the city the dogs shall eat; and him that dieth in the field shall the fowls of the air eat.

1 Kings 22:37-38
   So the king died, and was brought to Samaria; and they buried the king in Samaria.
   And one washed the chariot in the pool of Samaria; and the dogs licked up his blood; and they washed his armour; according unto the word of the LORD which he spake.

2 Kings 9:33,35-37
   So they threw her down…
   And they went to bury her: but they found no more of her than the skull, and the feet, and the palms of her hands.
   …In the portion of Jezreel shall dogs eat the flesh of Jezebel:
   And the carcase of Jezebel shall be as dung upon the face of the field in the portion of Jezreel; so that they shall not say, This is Jezebel.
