This is a series of five lectures by Steve Volle on the life of the prophet Elisha. Steve Volle is a Bible teacher and the principal at Bodenseehof. Filmed during Bible school at Capernwray Hall.
Session 1: The Cloak
Steve introduces the teaching series on the life of the prophet Elisha with the initial commissioning of Elisha by Elijah. The event, which takes place in 1 Kings 19, records how Elijah passes by and casts his cloak on Elisha. Steve explores what this meant then, and how we can also relate to it today as Christians.
Session 2: The Sandwich
Steve continues the teaching series on the life of the prophet Elisha where a symbol is a sermon. In this lecture, Steve explores the significance of Elijah sacrificing his oxen after being commissioned by Elijah to the ministry of prophet. Steve also looks at what this means for us today as Christians.
Session 3: The Salt
In this third lecture on the life of Elisha where a symbol is a sermon, Steve explores the connection between salt and covenant. This vital aspect not only has deep significance within the story of Elisha but also for us and our relationship with Christ.
Session 4: The Harp
In this fourth lecture, Steve explores the role of the harp as a symbol in the story of the prophet Elisha. In one sense, the instrument itself is not that important, but it is a significant pointer toward the importance of worship in the life of Elisha and a challenge for us to have a similar attitude.
Session 5: The Sacrifice
In this lecture, Steve explores the fifth and final symbol in the story of Elisha and this time it is the symbol of sacrifice. Steve explains that sacrifice was an absolute and detailed necessity in the life of Elisha, but because of Jesus this has taken on an entirely different level of significance for us today.
