008: Elijah’s Showdown on Mt Carmel

Elijah Statue on Mt Carmel

It’s one of the greatest showdowns in history.

Elijah and the prophets of Baal faceoff in a battle for a demonstration of the power of the true God! Guess who wins?

You may have heard this story hundreds of times. Yet, Hans brings insights from the original Hebrew that may just surprise you.

In today’s podcast, we are standing on the viewpoint of the Mahraqa Monastery on Mt Carmel, Israel. The view of the Jezreel Valley below is stunning. Yet, the story we are about to hear is far greater.
