Elisha, Pt. 6: Naaman, Gehazi, and the Floating Ax Head (2 Kings 5:17-6:7)

PDF of Lesson Outline

We pick up where we left off with the story of Naaman's healing, which some Christians through the centuries have viewed as a foreshadowing of baptism.  We discuss one aspect of baptism, the power over death and the hope of eternal life.  We then look at the story of Gehazi, who falls into the sins of greed and deceit, and provides a warning to us to embrace a Godly view of wealth and possessions.  Finally, we look at the story of the lost ax head.
