‘Understanding Elisha’s final act and his death’ (2 Kings 13:10-21)

In this final instalment on the life and ministry of the prophet Elisha from 2 Kings 13:11-21. we meet Elisha on his deathbed, but also in his grave. The images of Elisha weakened, dying and then dead are quite symbolic of the state of Israel’s spiritual life, but from his weakness came power and from his death came life. It seems that this is so much ‘like God’ to do this. In fact from his greatest show of ‘weakness’ (Christ taking our place on the cross), came both power for salvation and life for the dead! Elisha, again, points us to Jesus.
