The Sanctuary Choirs of First Baptist Nashville and First Baptist Huntsville will present Mendelssohn’s "Elijah" April 19 and 26, 2015. Featuring a 150+ voice choir, full orchestra, and drama cast we will bring this dynamic Bible story to life through music and drama.

Mendelssohn’s "Elijah" is one of the most dramatic Biblical works ever composed. Elijah stepped out of nowhere to become a significant prophet of God. The rugged prophet from the obscure town of Tishbeh became God’s powerful instrument of confrontation. Alone, Elijah faced off with over four hundred prophets of the false god Baal…and won. He was a man who God loved so much that He sent His ravens to feed him and prepared a special chariot and horses of fire to transport him from earth to heaven. He was Elijah…the man in a whirlwind, the humble hero.

Like Elijah, we’re all subject to times of bravery and times of fear. One day we’re able to face life with a smile; the next, we feel crushed by its oppressive weight. We vacillate from courageous to cowardly, from hopeful to hopeless. Like Elijah, we are ordinary people with seemingly overwhelming problems. Our answer is in God and God alone, just as the name “Elijah” indicates: It means: “The Lord is my God.”

Modern idols come in many forms: money, power, position, prestige. Elijah dedicated himself to destroying the idols of his day with a deep conviction and unwavering tenacity that few have equaled since. Elijah’s testimony is just as relevant today as it was in the day when he stood up boldly for God at a time when idolatry was prevalent in the land of Israel. This is a message we need to hear and share again for the people of our culture.
