The World Of Elijah And Elisha

Elijah and Elisha were two of the most powerful of The Lord's prophets during the period of the kings. Elijah came first (1 Kings 17:1), with the younger Elisha called later to serve as his assistant (1 Kings 19:19-21). Upon Elijah's departure on a "chariot of fire" (2 Kings 2:11), Elisha was appointed to replace Elijah as the leader of the prophets (2 Kings 2:15), and to complete the mission that The Lord originally gave to Elijah.
