Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Elijah the Prophet.
Elijah the Prophet lived in Gilead and exercised his prophetic work during the 9th and 10th centuries. His name, Elias, means "Yah is My God" in Hebrew. He lived an ascetic life and showed great zeal for the Teaching of God. His miracles were many and magnificent which testify to his highest theological importance.
The incarnate Angel, the Cornerstone of the Prophets, the second Forerunner of the Coming of Christ, the glorious Elias (Elijah), who from above, sent down to Elisha the grace to dispel sickness and cleanse lepers, abounds therefore in healing for those who honor him.
