Question 1 of 8

The Prophet, Elijah, called down fire from heaven to challenge the false prophets of Ba'al at the summit of Mt. Carmel.

The Carmelite Monastery, at the summit of Mt. Carmel, marks the place where Elijah did performed his fiery miracle.  From antiquity, this was considered a sacred place—one that you can visit today in Israel. On the south-eastern peak, the actual site of the event is called Muhraka, meaning “the Scorching,” and is marked by a statue of Elijah.
