John Legg shows the prophet Elisha in a completely different light: as a forerunner of Christ himself. As a result, Elisha takes on a more significant role, while the Lord stands before us in new colors. A model of how to preach Christ from the Old Testament, this interesting book offers profitable insights into the ministry of God's grace and the practical illustrations of its application. 204 pages, softcover.
The gospel according to Elisha is a full one. It shows the compassion, grace and mercy of God. It demonstrates the power and trustworthiness of the Lord Jesus Christ towards lost and helpless sinners. It illustrates the character of sin and then the content of Christ's salvation as a remedy for that sin in all its many aspects. It embodies Christ's use of the Word of God and also of weak human instruments. It looks forward to the coming of the great Prophet, Christ, and on to his coming again at the last day, when the resurrection of the dead will signal the end of all things with the renewal of the heavens and the earth. It points us to the one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus and calls us to repent and believe in him, if we have never done so before.
