I wonder if the story of him ascending to heaven in YHWH's chariot is a thinly veiled refernce to the other prohpets having murdered him, because he was too uncomfortable, even for them -- a bit like the Senate having murdered Romulus, and then put out that he was assumed into heaven as the demi-god Quirinus?
