Elijah’s Closet: Our Mission
Elijah was one of the important Biblical prophets, who lived in the 9th century BC during the times of King Ahab and his wicked queen Jezebel. Elijah is regarded by all faiths (Jews, Christians, Muslims and Druze) as a healer, a miracle maker, and a great hero who stood against the might of Kings and false prophets. He is incorporated in many of the religious accounts (such as the transfiguration of Jesus) and traditions. At the Passover meal, the Jewish tradition reserves a cup for Elijah in his return as the Messiah. In the Christian tradition it is believed that Jesus took Elijah’s cup when he gave it to his disciples to drink from the new covenant of his blood, to be shared with all.
