Excerpt from The Expositor, Vol. 6

The very incident from which the text is taken marks the parallelism to which we have here adverted. The Baptist has his type in Elijah. Elisha typifies Christ. The first and the characteristic miracle of Elisha bears a striking resemblance to the first and representative miracle of the Saviour. The gracious interposition to heal the diseased waters Of Jericho, what was it but the faint antici pation and foreshadowing of the scene presented to us in one of this day's select scriptures - the Marriage Feast in Cana? The same sympathy with the discomforts and inconveniences of outward circumstance, the same ap plication Of superhuman strength to human need - but far more than this - the same parable in act, of the transforming power of grace - ~the same control and counteraction Of the deep-seated malady of fallen humanity - the bringing back God into God's handiwork - the impregnating and satur ating of man's life with an In?uence and a Presence lost once and forfeited by sin. There is one point peculiar to this parable, and that is the stress laid upon the Spring of the Waters. The water is naught and the ground barren. Man, then, might have been satisfied to deal with the symptoms, with the stream and with the ground, but God's prophet goes to the spring Of the waters and casts the healing salt in there. There must be a new cruse something with which man has not intermeddled - that is one necessity - and then the casting-in must be at the spring - at the source - if God is, as the prophet here reports Him, to say, I have healed these waters. When the miracle is thus interpreted into parable, as all miracles are inter preted, we see how infinite may be its applications. It is the parable Of Thoroughness. It bids go to the spring of our disease and never rest until the antidote is at work there. It would have us look in all our life - the national.
