Elijah challenges the prophets of Baal to a contest which involves sacrifices at mount Carmel which is somehow outside the jurisdiction of the temple
1 Kings 18:19-20 NASB
Now then, send orders and gather to me all Israel at Mount Carmel, together with 450 prophets of Baal and four hundred prophets of [f]the Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”20 So Ahab sent orders among all the sons of Israel and brought the prophets together at Mount Carmel.
But according to God's instructions concerning sacrifices and burnt offerings there were never to be carried outside the temple
Deuteronomy 12:11 NASB
then it shall come about that the place in which the Lord your God will choose for His name to dwell, there you shall bring everything that I command you: your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, your tithes and the [h]contribution of your hand, and all your choice vowed offerings which you will vow to the Lord.
There is no mention of God designating mount Carmel as a place of sacrifice.The temple was still standing around this time which would seem somehow like a violation of Gods instruction
Did Elijah violate God's word?
