The Important Detail We Forget about the Story of Naaman

Elisha’s healing of Naaman the leper, commander of the army of the king of Syria, is a familiar story to many (2 Kgs 5:1–27). Naaman hears that Elisha, the prophet of Israel, can heal him, so he makes the trip. When the two meet, Elisha tells him rather dismissively that he needs to take a bath in the Jordan River. Naaman doesn’t take this well and prepares to go home. At the behest of some servants, he consents to dip himself in the Jordan. He is miraculously healed by the simple act. The display of power, so transparently without sacrifice or incantation, awakens Naaman to the fact that Yahweh of Israel is the true God. Here’s where the story usually ends in our telling, but that would result in the omission of one very odd detail—what Naaman asks to take back home.

How to Discover the Significance of Biblical Names

Each week this summer the Logos Pros will teach you how to master the tools and resources of Logos Bible Software. You’ll get some pointers and some study questions. 

Names in the Bible frequently do something different than names in contemporary Western culture. Western names express cultural solidarity, but their etymological meaning is generally beside the point (how many “Jonathans” know that their name derives from “gift of God”?).

In the Bible, however, certain names are given by God—Abraham, Isaac, Israel—and therefore bear special significance. [Read more…]
