Slide 1

After hearing God speak to him on Mount Horeb, Elijah returned as God had told him to do. God had asked him to anoint Elisha, the son of Shaphat as his successor and become a prophet of God. – Slide 1

Slide 2

Elisha and his family lived in Abel Meholah in the land of Israel ruled by King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. It was Queen Jezebel who had threatened to kill Elijah. – Slide 2

Slide 3

Elisha was out in the fields belonging to his family where twelve oxen were being used to plough the land. Elisha was driving the twelfth pair of oxen. Elijah went across the field to meet Elisha. – Slide 3

Slide 4

Elijah went up to Elisha and threw his cloak around him. The cloak was a symbol of Elijah’s calling to be a prophet of God. By putting the cloak around Elisha he was showing that God had chosen Elisha to succeed him. Elijah then walked away. – Slide 4

Slide 5

Elijah left his oxen and raced after Elisha. – Slide 5

Slide 6

‘Let me kiss my parents goodbye,’ Elisha said, ‘and then I will come with you.’ Elisha was prepared to give up his job and leave his family to obey God and become a prophet. ‘Go back,’ Elijah replied. ‘What have I done to you?’ – Slide 6

Slide 7

So Elisha went back home. He took his yoke of oxen and slaughtered them. He burned the ploughing equipment to cook the meat and gave it to his family and friends to eat at his farewell meal. – Slide 7

Slide 8

Then after saying goodbye to his parents, Elisha set out to follow Elijah and become his servant. He would learn from Elijah how to love and serve God and one day take over from him. – Slide 8
