In the opening message of this series we meet the people of Israel and their king, Ahab, who has led them into the darkness of idolatry. We also meet Elijah, who stands in the presence of YHWH, and comes to proclaim God’s holy disruption of his covenant people and invite them to repentance and reconciliation.
