Editorial Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to vividly depict the works of scripture. He speaks in a pleasant, friendly voice but with authority, frequently incorporating contemporary references. The programs are a lively combination of a sermon and college lecture.

In this episode, Dr. Creasy discusses Elijah on the Run (1 Kings 19: 1-22: 53).

Publisher's Summary

After Elijah’s dramatic battle with the 450 prophets of Baal at Mt. Carmel, Jezebel vows that “by this time tomorrow [Elijah will be a dead man]” (1 Kings 19: 2). Elijah runs as fast and as far away as he can. Totally exhausted and spent, God assigns Elijah three more tasks to accomplish to complete his job: 1) on the international stage, “anoint Hazael king over Aram [Syria]”; 2) on the domestic stage, “anoint Jehu son of Nimshi king over Israel”; and 3) on the personal front, “anoint Elisha son of Shaphat from Abel Meholah to succeed you as prophet” (1 Kings 19: 15-16). Meanwhile, Jehoshaphat, king of Judah (869-848 B.C.), arranges a tentative peace between Israel and Judah. With the support of Jehoshaphat, Ahab goes to war against Aram [Syria] at Ramoth Gilead. Ahab is killed. In a fitting ending, “they [hosed out] his chariot at a pool in Samaria (where the prostitutes bathed), and the dogs licked up [Ahab’s] blood, as the word of the Lord foretold” (1 Kings 22: 38).
