Readings: 2 Kings 2:1-15
“In the book of Joshua the parting of the waters was a prelude to the people of God gaining access to the earthly Promised Land. For Elijah, this served as a prelude to his going to the true, eternal Promised Land. It is a sign of his entrance into the true Promised Land.” –John D. Currid
