Poison in the Pot (Discussion Questions)

Categories: Elijah and Elisha

Read II Kings 4:38-41

  • Where did Elisha visit the sons of the prophets? (Gilgal)
  • What was wrong with the pottage (stew)? (one of the prophets had gathered a wild gourd)
  • What did Elisha do to remedy the problem? (sprinkled in meal)
  • Is that all he did? Do you think there was something else he did?
  • Is there anything we need to be careful of when we gather food in a field? (mushrooms, other?)
  • What does this require of us? Just to be careful of what we put in the pot? Is something more required?
