The call of Moses (4)

Moses sent nine plagues (Blood, boils, hail, locusts, flies, livestock, darkness, frogs, lice) but the pharaoh still refused to let the Israelites go free
So, G-d sent the final plague: The death of the firstborn
Moses told all the Israelites that they would have to sacrifice a lamb, and put the blood on their door

Elijah at Carmel 8

G-d asked Elijah to bring all the prophets (450) of Baal to eat at Jezebel’s table
Elijah offered a challenge: The prophets of Baal would (like Elijah) take a bull cut it up and put it on wood. Then both sides would offer prayers, and whichever God responded by lighting the wood, is the true God
This challenge was to see which the real God was
The prophets agreed, and started to pray, and chant, but nothing happened
Even after Elijah taunted them, and the prophets slashed each other with swords, nothing happened
After a long time, Elijah ordered what was left of the prophets to come to him with four jars of water to pour on the offering
Elijah said a prayer after they had done his wishes, and G-d struck fire onto the wood
The prophets of Baal now believed in G-d
