2 Kings 5 - 6

2 Kings
2 KingsSteve Gregg

In this text, Steve Gregg explores the story of Naaman in 2 Kings 5-6. Naaman, a Syrian commander with leprosy, is healed by Elisha the prophet. Gregg notes that the ancients did not differentiate between serious skin conditions and lesser ones, and that God was not typically in the business of doing miracles for pagans. Naaman is ultimately healed when he obeys Elisha's command to dip himself seven times in the Jordan River. The text also explores the story of the siege of Samaria and the cannibalism that ensued during a time of great famine.
