My wife recently told me that the reason we are naming our son with the Middle name Elijah is that once I told her that the story of Elijah is one of my favorite stories in the Old Testament. So what are your favorite OT person.

I have also long respected Elisha, and am perfectly willing to emulate his conduct in dealing with disrespectful youths if need be.*

*I lack the "prophet" status, as well as being holy, but perhaps those are incidentals?

I really relate to the Old Testament. In my simple mind it helps to explain and the New to me and allows me to understanding Christs teachings better.
