Gideon's Sacrifice, detail – Fontebasso

Gideon, one of the Hebrew judges from the Old-Testament also known as Gedeon, initiates a sacrifice to the Lord that an angel helps him out on:

"The angel of the Lord put forth the tip of the rod, which he held in his hand, and touched the flesh and the unleavened loaves: and there arose a fire from the rock, and consumed the flesh and the unleavened loaves: and the angel of the Lord vanished out of his sight." Judges 6:21
