This children’s book tells the story of a Jewish boy named Eli who grows up wanting to become like one of his heroes. He relishes every opportunity to hear his Grandfather, Saba, recount stories of Elisha.
The joy in this tale is found not only in experiencing Saba's exuberant personality, or being warmed by the storytelling and friendship of a man and his grandson, but in the fact that along every step of the way, Eli not only hears of a coming King, but he keeps running into Jesus at every turn.
This book helps families understand the Gospel of John, the Seven Signs of Jesus, and the Seven “I Am” sayings. Each episode recorded in the life of Elisha and in John’s Gospel points to an expected King, a Hero, a Messiah, and a Kingdom to come that is far greater than the characters in the stories themselves.
Come along with Eli and Saba on a wild ride of storytelling and discovery, and learn about the real HERO of the Bible—Jesus!
