During the severe famine in the reign of King Ahab, Elijah sought out lodging with a widow in Zarephath. Zarephath, is known as Sarafand in Lebanon today. Miraculously, the widow’s small supply of flour and oil was not consumed until the famine came to an end. And when her son died, Elijah brought him to life again (1 Kings 17:8-24). These miracles were recalled by Jesus as an example of a prophet who is unwelcome in his hometown (Luke 4:24-26)
