Bible Notes PULLOUT SECTION
Related to the Lesson-Sermons for October 1987
Each Lesson-Sermon published in the Christian Science Quarterly—Bible Lessons is designed to be complete in itself. Its Bible references (King James Version) are corroborated and explained by passages from the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. These Bible Notes are offered by the Christian Science Sentinel as indications of the possibilities for individual research.
Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which belongeth to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee (I Kings 17:9)
Elijah was being sent by the Lord into Phoenician territory, the very homeland of King Ahab's wife Jezebel, daughter of the king of Sidon ("Zidon"), whose enthusiastic promotion of Baal-worship in Israel made her a persecutor of Elijah. The widow who was to sustain him in this country was presumably not a worshiper of the God of Israel (she speaks of the Lord as "thy God," not hers), but she was to obey the word of the prophet and find it trustworthy (see also verse 24).
