The Books of Kings are an important source on the history of Israel.
The section 1 Kings 17-22 is shaped by the complex of the Elijah traditions, the miracle stories contained therein and their interdependence with the history of the Israelite kings.
The passages from the second part of the 1st Book of Kings commented on in this volume include such central and well-known Bible texts as the ordeal on Mount Carmel, Elijah's flight and the appearance of God on Mount Horeb or the conflicts with the queen's wife Jezebel.
Winfried Thiel gives an impression of this and develops his own profiled interpretation in dealing with numerous different research positions.
