Elijah was not taken by a fiery chariot

Filed under: General — Mr. Green @ 8.23 am

Last night I read 2 Kings chapter 2 and was reminded of one fact I learned in DTS. One of our leaders, Sean pointed out that Elijah was not taken up in a fiery chariot as most people think. Read it for yourself:

“It happened, as they still went on, and talked, that behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, which parted them both apart; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.”
-2 Kings 2.11 [WEB]

It’s interesting how we have a certain idea of what the Bible says and even read a passage several times and not realize what it’s saying. There are other things like that as well. It reminds me that I would like to do an SBS (YWAM’s School of Biblical Studies) some time.
