Elijah and Elisha resources on Max7

Elijah & Elisha 2376 169As a young child discovering the Old Testament, some of my favourite characters were Elijah and Elisha. I remember listening to their stories over and over again on a couple of vinyl records (yes I am that old!) we had at home. I was thrilled by Elijah’s contests with Ahab and sympathised with him when it got to be too much for him and he ran away. I envied Elisha when he was called to work with Elijah and respected his courage in taking over from him when he went to heaven. Every time I listened to those stories I came away with a bigger picture of God and a determination to follow him boldly.

Yes, there were some stories from the lives of Elijah and Elisha those records didn’t cover. Some episodes in their lives are puzzling to us today and are not suitable for children. But don’t let those discourage you from introducing your children to these wonderful examples of God’s power and the very ordinary, human people he used to accomplish amazing things.
