Why so young?

Elijah started young because he had a 36-year span of work.

  • King Ahab, 874-853 = 22 years – “neither dew nor rain”
  • King Ahaziah, 853-852 = 2 years – “die in your bed”
  • King Joram, 852-841 = 12 years – “bowels will drop out”
Total reigns = 36 years

In the 9th Century, BC, most people died before their fiftieth birthday.

With his busy schedule, Elijah needed a young start.
