God Saves: Lessons from the Elisha Stories


Sheffield Academic Press 1990

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


This fresh examination of the Elisha narratives found in 2 Kings 5, 6:8-23 and 6:24-7:20 leads to a new interpretation of them as didactic salvation stories set against the Aramaean military threat to ninth-century Israel. Moore shows how an ingenious literary artistry converges powerfully with contextual dynamics to explicate the surprising and subtle saving actions of Yahweh in a troubled time. Each of the stories offers its own fresh disclosure of the time-worn tradition expressed in Elisha's own name: ''God saves.''
