Elisha was an Old Testament prophet during a very dark time in Israel’s history. Yet his life and experiences, as recorded in the book of 2 Kings, have much to help us as Christians on our own spiritual journeys. In the examples of Elisha and other characters in these Old Testament passages, we learn about faith, courage, obedience, contentment, greed, proper regard for God, prayer, justice for the oppressed, God’s compassion for the weak, God’s judgment, forgiveness, and love for one’s enemies. Elisha, the miracle worker, also points us to Christ in many remarkable ways. Notes are provided in each lesson for self-study, reflection, and as a resource to teach others.
