The Jezreel Valley seen from Mt. Carmel. A rich thirteen mile mountain range whose peak looks over the Jezreel Valley. It was here Elijah had his classic battle with Jezebel’s false prophets of Baal (1Kings 18:19-39). After the God of Israel vindicated Elijah, the prophet slew the prophets of Baal at the foot of Mount Carmel at the Brook Kishon (1Kings 18:40). Today at the summit of Mount Carmel, there is a statue of Elijah with knife in hand to signify his slaying the false prophets of the evil Queen Jezebel.
