Megiddo Gallery – El & Baal Idols (Audio 207)

El is a generic name for god, like Allah in Arabic, or God in English.

The God of Israel revealed His name as יהוה  / YHVH (LORD in the KJV).

Before you are the idols talked about in Hosea 8:4 “of their silver and their gold have them made them idols”.  On the right is Baal. I Kings 18:21 tells of Elijah on Mount Carmel, “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”

Interestingly, the name Elijah (El-Jah) means (remember Hebrew is right to left) YH (Jehovah) is the EL (God).
