May 12, 2024 – More on Mt. Horeb and 1 Kings 19

Rabbinical tradition considered Mt. Horeb (Sinai) as a sacred mountain, and found references to mountains serving as types for Israel and even the Messiah.  Elijah’s experience of the “still, small voice” of God there embodied a whole host of meanings –  from the death and resurrection of the Israelites at the giving of the Law to the suffering of the Messiah to come. The concept we would call death to self and or picking up the cross was present in Jewish tradition even at the time of Christ.
