Season 2, Episode 1
For Thursday, August 6, 2015
“Observations from Under the Juniper Tree”

HOST: Andrew Crowe




Show Notes:

  • In the inaugural episode of season 2, Andrew looks into the prophet Elijah, one of the greatest examples of a Biblical person who suffered from depression. This and future studies will look into his background as well as some peripheral information surrounding the text in 1 Kings 19.

Outline of this episode:

  • We will spend some time studying a prophet of the Bible who is known for many things.

    o   He proved God to be the true God in Israel (1 Kings 18).

    o   His prayer is an example used by James to show the power that ours can have (James 5:16-17).

    o   We often do not study another importance period of this prophet’s life.

    o   He shows us that while we will sometimes be up on the mountain, we may also find ourselves down in the valley.

  • He is the prophet of Elijah and we want to study a little about his time in 1 Kings 19.

    o   First time we read of him is in 1 Kings 17.

         –  Nothing is known of his parents.

         –  Jews think that he is a Levite or a priest.

    o   A few things have happened up to our point of study (1 Kings 18).

    o   1 Kings 19:1-2 – Ahab tells Jezebel what has been done and she gives a threat to Elijah.

    o   1 Kings 19:3 – Let’s be honest – we’d probably do the same thing.

    o  1 Kings 19:4 – He came to rest himself under the juniper tree.

    o   It is this Elijah that we want to investigate.

  •  He is one of the greatest examples of a Biblical person who suffered from depression.

  • Next week: We will observe some of the symptoms Elijah shows in 1 Kings 19.
