Ahab Introduced Baal Worship To Israel
It was king Ahab who introduced Baal worship to them.
1 Kings 16:30-33 Now Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the
sight of the LORD, more than all who were before him. And
it came to pass, as though it had been a trivial thing for
him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that
he took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal, king of
the Sidonians; and he went and served Baal and worshiped
him. Then he set up an altar for Baal in the temple of
Baal, which he had built in Samaria. And Ahab made a wooden
image. Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to
anger than all the kings of Israel who were before him.
