2 Kings 4:17-37, 1 Kings 17:7-24

2 Kings 2:7-14

When I read that the Shunammites’ son was brought back to life after Elisha’s prayer request to God, I flipped back to re-read a portion of Elijah’s life.  I found that Elisha’s experience paralleled the experience of the Zarephath widow’s son being brought back to life after Elijah’s prayer request to God.

It’s interesting to note the similarities between Elijah and Elisha.  Besides the above similarity, their names are alike, and they both divided water with the same cloak.  I’m sure they had more in common and I’m saddened I don’t have more time to do further study at this point.
