LIVING WORDS A Term 1 LESSON 8 1 Kings 18.1–40
The Great King of Israel: The Great King above all gods
Israel is not faithfully following God, the Great King. They are worshipping Baal, a false god from the nations around them. They are being unfaithful because their king, Ahab, is unfaithful. Elijah the prophet invites the prophets of Baal for a showdown on Mt Carmel. Can God, the Great King of heaven and earth defeat the false god, Baal? Only the true king will win.
