E100-39: 1 Kings 16:29 – 19:18: The big fight at Mt Carmel - 5 minute Bible
Since this is a gripping, but well-known, story what I’ll try to do in this podcast is show you how a bit of context (see here for more on context and understanding the Bible). I’ll also tell you God’s two nicknames, in some religious traditions knowing all a god’s names is really important, in Hinduism the god Vishnu has 1,000 names, in Islam there is a tradition that God has 99 names. Yahweh the God the Bible talks about has kicknames as well as formal names! A couple of photos to illustrate the geography 🙂 http://5minutebible.com/audio/E1001Kings16-19.mp3Read More →
