comment What and where is the Kerith ravine?
Another question or hint - the story is a bit more complex that you have stated so far - Obadiah shows that not all Israel followed Baal, in fact, in Obadiah, Ahab chose a loyal servant of the LORD to run his palace, a person who secretly protected 100 prophets of the LORD in times of great danger, some of which was caused by Elijah's actions. What does that appointment say about Ahab? What is Kings saying about Elijah vs Obadiah and Elijah vs Moses? Is Kings making a comparson?

Compare Obadiah's response to the crisis with that of Elijah's, higlighted by the meeting between the two men. What is I Kings trying to tell us about these two ways of dealing with the challenges?

comment What and where is the Kerith ravine?
In the parallels that Kings draws between Elijah and Moses that you mention, how does Elijah come out in comparison with Moses? What is the implication of God feeding Israel in the wilderness manna versus feeding Elijah by means of an unclean fowl in the revine of "cutting off"? How does Elijah compare with Obadiah in the continuation of the story?

comment What and where is the Kerith ravine?
Have you considered the possibility that the author of Kings might not be refering to a geographical location? How is the word "cherith" used in other places in this chapter? If Elijah is a prophet, why should he need to be placed at God's mercy? What is this supposed to teach him that he wouldn't already know?
