Elijah’s offering on mount Carmel suggests a chronological story. This article explores.
It appears that most, maybe all, of Elijah and Elisha’s miracles are performed so as to indicate some story though out world history. This particular one is easy to spot because it links chronologically with other stories in the Bible.
The story begins in the "third year"1 which is prophetically the 3rd year of the exile. That third year began about 110 AD, and ended about 470 AD. The story says that the famine in Samaria was severe, and this reference picks up a link to the choice of a 3 year famine offered David by the destroying angel. This pegs the starting epoch for this report as 1849/1/15 FE, the same period that ends David’s famine choice.
This story also includes a reference to the two sets of 50 prophets, that Obadiah had hidden in caves. This is a "double 50" reference and is a key that the story is indicating the United States in some way or another. This 50 year prophetic interval is mapped exactly to the same 50 year interval mentioned in David’s story at Second Samuel 24:24.
