1 Kings 18

Elijah appears before Ahab and challenges the prophets of Baal; the Lord sends fire to consume his sacrifice and the altar.

  • Think about Ahab’s accusation in verse 17—who was the real “troubler of Israel” and why?
  • Read verse 19 in light of verse 2—despite a severe famine, Ahab paid for nearly 1000 false prophets.
  • As you read verses 20ff note the contrasts between true and false worship.
