Storyboard Text

  • The 450 prophets of Baal prepared their altar and started calling their God's name yet the altar did not start burning. So Elijah started to taunt them.
  • Baal, answer us!
  • Shout louder! Maybe he's just asleep.
  • Then Elijah repaired the altar of the Lord, which had been torn down. He 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.
  • Fill four large jars with water and pour it on the offering and on the wood.
  • He then called to God:
  • Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command. Answer me, Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, Lord, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.
  • They seized them, and Elijah had them brought down to the Kishon Valleyand slaughtered there
  • Suddenly, the altar lit up in flames. 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.
  • Seize the prophets of Baal. Don’t let anyone get away!
  • The Lord—he is God! The Lord—he is God!
  • And Elijah said to Ahab, “Go, eat and drink, for there is the sound of a heavy rain.” So Ahab went off to eat and drink, but Elijah climbed to the top of Carmel, bent down to the ground and put his face between his knees.
  • There is nothing there
  • Go and look toward the sea
  • Go back.
  • Meanwhile, the sky grew black with clouds, the wind rose, a heavy rain started falling and Ahab rode off to Jezreel. The power of the Lord came on Elijah and, tucking his cloak into his belt, he ran ahead of Ahab all the way to Jezreel.
  • Elijah told him to go back 7 times until he finally saw something.
  • A cloud as small as a man’s hand is rising from the sea.
  • Go and tell Ahab, ‘Hitch up your chariot and go down before the rain stops you.
