And now it's time to play... NAME THAT PROPHET!

Background: Under the influence of his wife Jezebel, Israel's evil King Ahab brings the religious life of the northern kingdom [of Israel] to an unprecedented low. Jezebel sought to establish Baal-worship as the religion of Israel. [There were many local gods named "Baal." Each locality gave their Baal a surname!] She killed God's prophets and replaced them with prophets of Baal. God withheld rain as punishment, demonstrating the powerlessness of those who oppose him. God used a prophet to announce the drought to the evil king, and God sent this prophet back to Ahab to challenge Ahab's god, Baal.

GOD'S PROPHET replied [to Ahab]: "Now summon the people from all over Israel to meet me on Mount Carmel. And bring the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel's table. [Asherah was a fertility goddess and the consort of Baal.] So Ahab sent word throughout all Israel and assembled the prophets on Mount Carmel. GOD'S PROPHET went before the people and said, "How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal is God, follow him."

But the people said nothing.

So GOD'S PROPHET challenged the prophets of Baal and told them to Sacrifice a bull and ask their god to set fire to it. They did so, shouting to Baal without success.

And they danced around the altar they had made. At noon GOD'S PROPHET began to taunt them. "Shout louder!" he said. "Surely he is a god!..." Maybe he is sleeping and must be awakened." So they shouted louder and slashed themselves with swords and spears, as was their custom, until their blood flowed. But there was no response...

Then GOD'S PROPHET said to all the people, "Come here to me."They came to him, and he repaired the altar of the Lord, which was in ruins. GOD'S PROPHET took twelve stones, one for each of the tribes descended from Jacob... With the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord, and he dug a trench around it... Then he said to them, "Fill four large jars with water and pour it on the offering and on the wood."

Then the fire of the Lord fell and burned up the sacrifice, the wood, the stones and the soil, and also licked up the water in the trench. When all the people saw this, they fell prostrate and cried, "The Lord -- he is God! The Lord -- he is God!"

Then GOD'S PROPHET commanded them, "Seize the prophets of Baal. Don't let anyone get away!" They seized them, andGOD'S PROPHET had them brought down to the Kishon valley and slaughtered there.
