Obadiah (1 Kings)
Obadiah is a character in 1 Kings in the Hebrew Bible. He was a majordomo in charge of Ahab's palace. According to 1 Kings 18:4, Obadiah hid a hundred prophets of Yahweh in caves to protect them from Jezebel.
Peter Leithart compares Obadiah to Elijah and notes that both are faithful servants of Yahweh but that they "radically differ in their position and mode of service." Whereas "Elijah confronts Ahab from outside the court," Obadiah works for the preservation of the prophets from within Ahab's court.
