I Looked Over Jordan

August 16, 2020 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: 1 & 2 Kings

Scripture: 2 Kings 2:1–2:15

I Looked Over Jordan
2 Kings 2:1-15
Pastor Rich Lanning



I.   A journey to the Jordan.  2 Kings 2:1-7




II.  A reverse exodus.  2 Kings 2:8




III.  Elijah ascends into heaven.  2 Kings 2:11-12; Acts 1:9




IV.  Elisha takes up Elijah's mantle.  2 Kings 2:9-10, 13-15



Questions for reflection:

  • How is Elisha prepared to follow in the footsteps of Elijah? Are you in a discipleship relationship with another person?


  • How does Elijah serve as a type or picture of Jesus in this passage?


  • How is Elisha and his ministry a picture of the church?
