Elijah is a key biblical figure. He was a Hebrew prophet, who existed in around 900 B.C., during the reign of Israel’s King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. Elijah is mentioned in the Book of Kings of the Hebrew Bible, apart from many portions of the New Testament, such as Luke, Romans, Hebrews, and James. Elijah proved the might of the God of Israel, in a contest with the Pagan deity Baal, on Mount Carmel. Elijah has immense significance not just in Christianity, but also in Judaism and Islam. “Elijah’s Cup” and “Elijah’s Chair” are two of the most significant religious motifs in Judaism that mention Elijah. In Islam, he is hailed as a prophet and has often been identified with Idris and Khidr. The Roman Catholic Church, the Lutheran Church, the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Byzantine churches celebrate his feast day on July 20. He is also the patron saint of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
