Old Testament Lesson 29: “He Took Up … the Mantle of Elijah”

To help class members understand how the authority (mantle) passes from one prophet to another, to encourage them to obey the words of the prophets, and to assure them that the power of God is greater than any other power.

2 Kings 2; 5–6

    1. Thanks for taking the time to comment, glad the lessons help. I love that as teachers we can receive different direction and personal revelation for our lessons, often how I start out and what I have when I’m finished is very different. BB
