John uses the issues of food and sex to continue his indirect denunciation of “Jezebel.” He focuses on these issues in the passages that feature female characters in order to connect the activities of “Jezebel” (ɛιδωλόθυτα and πορνɛία) to “Babylon's” heinous acts focused on eating (cannibalism) and sex (promiscuity). John also uses gender stereotypes (specifically that women are weak, undisciplined, emotional, and ultimately dangerous) to suggest that his rival, a woman, is unfit to lead the churches.

Keywords:   πορνɛία, ɛιδωλόθυτα, cannibalism, promiscuity, Babylon, food, gender stereotypes, Jezebel, sex
