Slide 1

Elisha was the prophet who took over from the prophet Elijah. Elisha wore Elijah’s cloak as proof he was God’s choice to replace the great prophet. – Slide 1

Slide 2

One day Elisha came across a group of prophets. As the place they met with Elisha was too small, they decided to build a bigger meeting place down by the River Jordan. Elisha told them to go ahead but they insisted he went down to the river with them. – Slide 2

Slide 3

They went to the Jordan and began to cut down trees. As one of them was cutting down a tree, the iron axe-head came loose. – Slide 3

Slide 4

It flew through the air into the river. – Slide 4

Slide 5

‘Oh no!’ he cried out to Elisha. ‘It was an axe I borrowed!’  Metal axe-heads were very valued and expensive in those times.  Elisha asked, ‘Show me where it fell into the water. – Slide 5

Slide 6

The prophet pointed at the place the axe-head had splashed into the deep river. Elisha cut a stick and threw it into the water at the same place. – Slide 6

Slide 7

To everyone’s amazement the precious metal axe-head suddenly appeared floating on the water. ‘Lift it out,’ exclaimed Elisha. – Slide 7

Slide 8

The grateful prophet lifted the axe-head out of the water. It was a wonderful miracle and showed that God’s Spirit rested on Elisha in a very powerful way. – Slide 8
