In the New Testament, the prophet Elijah is kind of a big deal. He's mentioned in Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, Romans, and James. John the Baptist is said to be the Elijah prophesied about way back in the book of Malachi, and Elijah himself shows up (along with Moses) on the Mount of Transfiguration to speak with Jesus before His death and resurrection.
So why's Elijah so important? What's so special about him? Well, for starters, he called down fire from heaven, raised a boy from the dead, and ascended into heaven on chariots of fire. And most of all, he trusted God and was filled with the Holy Spirit.
Join us Tuesdays this summer for a study on The Life of Elijah. Starting May 24, we'll be meeting every Tuesday at 7 PM throughout the summer at IU's Indiana Memorial Union (IMU). Stay tuned for more specific details.
See you there!
