Elijah emerges from his long season of hiding in desert isolation to confront King Herod in the most spectacular way; a duel of the gods. Israel is in a state of indecision on which god they should follow; Baal, the pagan god of storms and water or Yahweh, the god who brought Israel out of Egypt. It takes a sacrifice on Mt. Carmel to free the people from their enchantment with Baal. Today, it is the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross that frees us from our enchantment with sin so that we can experience the favor of God.
