People in the Bible: Elisha, Man of Mission, Man of Miracles


Day One 2015

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


While the life of Elijah is familiar to most Christians, the mission and ministry of his successor, Elisha, is not. The majority of Elijah’s miracles were performed in the context of death and destruction, whereas the miracles of Elisha focused on healing and restoration. Elisha prophesied in Israel against the idolatry and unbelief that prevailed during the ninth century BC. The story of his life is relevant to modern Christians, and useful to all who seek to be witnesses in the modern world.
