Part 1 - 11/30/15

The miraculous life of Elisha

Elijah was a mighty man of valor, for about a day. Because after God gave him an amazing victory over the prophets of Baal, a threat from the opposition sent him running for cover. So how could he be a hero one day and a coward the next? It can happen to any of us if we take our eyes off God. Join the group today on Discover the Word as we begin a series on the miraculous life of Elisha, and how he was influenced by his mentor, Elijah.

Part 2 - 12/01/15

Elisha, revealing the kinder, gentler side of God

Many husbands refer to their wives as their “better half.” And Elisha the prophet could have been called that too. Today on Discover the Word, we’ll discuss that although Elisha was a servant to his mentor, Elijah, he would do twice as many miracles, ones that revealed a “kinder and gentler” side of God. “The Miraculous Life of Elisha” continues today on Discover the Word!

Part 3 - 12/02/15

Old Testament prophets reveal God’s character

Today on Discover the Word, we’ll discuss how Old Testament prophets Elijah and Elisha both represent God’s nature. Elijah shows Him more as a God of judgment, while Elisha shows more of God’s merciful side. And flashing forward, we can also see both of them in Jesus, who would come to save people from the judgment they brought on themselves.

Part 4 - 12/03/15

Discover how Elisha fills the shoes of his mentor

Today on Discover the Word, we will uncover another “Left Behind” story in the Bible. When the prophet Elijah was taken to heaven, caught up in a whirlwind, he left a very distressed Elisha. Elijah was his mentor, his friend, and his father in the faith. How could Elisha fill those shoes? Be part of the conversation today on Discover the Word!

Part 5 - 12/04/15

Elijah’s last miracle became Elisha’s first

Today on Discover the Word, we will continue the series on “The Miraculous Life of Elisha” by talking about Elisha’s transition from Elijah’s assistant, to his successor. Elijah was gone and so, it seemed, was Israel’s main spiritual defense. But now it was Elisha’s turn. And interestingly, Elijah’s last miracle became Elisha’s first. A fascinating twist to the conversation today on Discover the Word!

Part 6 - 12/07/15

Important lessons for our own lives

You’re invited to join the group today on Discover the Word as we explore a few Bible stories about water. John baptizing Jesus . . . Moses turning bitter waters into sweet . . . Christ at the well with the Samaritan woman . . . and the prophet Elisha purifying the waters of Jericho. It’s a theme that has important lessons for our own lives.

Part 7 - 12/08/15

Elisha and the two bears

Here’s a bedtime story you probably wouldn’t read to your kids, the story of Elisha and the two bears. After a gang of young men mocked the prophet Elisha, two bears suddenly showed up and mauled forty-two of them. Well, today on Discover the Word, we’ll talk about this strange and disturbing event. Is it possible there’s more to this story than meets the eye? Join us today for Discover the Word!

Part 8 - 12/09/15

Elisha’s miracle of displaying God’s mercy

It’s Christmas—a time when we sing about the three kings who came to worship Jesus. But today on Discover the Word, we’re going to discuss three kings of Israel who are not worth singing about—kings who worshiped pagan idols,  yet still believed God would give them victory over their enemy, Moab. So why would Elisha perform a miracle displaying God’s mercy to them?

Part 9 - 12/10/15

A surprisingly redemptive message

Today on Discover the Word, we reveal yet another uncomfortable Bible story, one that involves child sacrifice. It’s a violent story, but one with a surprisingly redemptive message. Be part of the group as they continue to explore “The Miraculous Life of Elisha,” right here on Discover the Word!

Part 10 - 12/11/15

A miracle that demonstrates God’s provision

Today on Discover the Word, we wind up a couple of weeks on “The Miraculous Life of Elisha” talking about a miracle that demonstrates God’s provision in a very personal way. Elisha’s miracles were largely public events. Until a distressed widow boldly asked Elisha to help her and her two sons. As we’ll see, the widow did what she could and through Elisha, God performed a miracle of multiplication. Another chapter in “The Miraculous Life of Elisha,” today on Discover the Word!
