Miracle working prophet who succeeded Elijah.

20 Loaves

Elisha fed 100 men with 20 loaves

Elisha was plowing when the prophet Elijah made him his successor by placing his cloak upon him. Elisha began working miracles after Elijah was swept away in a whirlwind and fiery chariot. He restored a widow's son to life and healed the leprosy of Naaman, the Syrian general. He also foretold the end of the siege of Samaria.  Elisha helped overthrow Jezebel and her son who ruled Israel and worshiped Baal.   Elisha anointed Hazael to be king over Syria and Jehu to be king over Israel.  These leaders defeated Jezebel and her son and had them killed.   After Elisha's death a dead man touched Elisha's bones and revived.
