Apostasy in Judaism - Examples - in The Bible

In The Bible

The first recorded reference to apostasy from Judaism is in Deuteronomy 13:6-11, which states:

"If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, "Let us go and worship other gods" (gods that neither you nor your fathers have known, gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), do not yield to him or listen to him. Show him no pity. Do not spare him or shield him. You must certainly put him to death. Your hand must be the first in putting him to death, and then the hands of all the people. Stone him to death, because he tried to turn you away from the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. Then all Israel will hear and be afraid, and no one among you will do such an evil thing again."

Ezekiel (Ezekiel 32:23-24), thought to be prophetic of the High Priests Jason and Menelaus, deserted their religion and their nation to the horror and hatred of their contemporaries.
