This widow does not have a name. Her story is given in 1 Kings 17:8-24 and she is mentioned by Jesus the Christ in Luke 4:24-26. The widow of Zarephath had nothing spectacular going on. Her husband had died, she was raising a son alone, and she was very poor, but this widow has much to teach us.
When it comes to wicked female characters in the Bible, there are many. If ever there was a Razzie Awards to salute the worst the Bible has to offer, Jezebel would easily take a top prize. Almost everyone knows her as the infamous witch of the Word. She reigned as the most powerful she-devil to ever wear a crown in Israel. Jezebel was a direct enemy of God. Edward B. Coe called her “the Lady Macbeth of Hebrew history.” Even though the name Jezebel means, “chaste, free from carnal connection”; her name is now often associated with all things evil.
