In First Kings Chapter 18, the biblical narrative explains a confrontation that happened between Elijah and Jezebel’s 450 prophets. Elijah confronts these Israelites who had chosen to serve Jezebel and not serve the One and Only YHVH. Ahab was caught in the middle of the conflict, with Jezebel calling the shots. The whole story takes place in the north of Israel atop Mount Carmel!

The drama then concludes at the Brook Kishon where the bold and zealous Elijah slaughters these prophets of Jezebel’s table, according to 1 Kings 18:40.
