Mount Carmel

Additional Links

This was a mountain in the land of Judea, near the Mediterranean sea. It took its name from the fruitfulness of it, being covered with vines and corn-fields. (See Isaiah 35:2; Amos 1:2) Hence Christ, when describing his church's beauty, saith, "Thine head upon thee is like Carmel:" (Song of Song of Solomon 7:5.) meaning, no doubt, himself; for Christ is "the Head of his body the church, the fulness which filleth all in all." (Ephesians 1:22-23.) Here it was the prophet Elijah did such wonders by faith, to the glory of God. (See 1 Kings 18:1-46)
