THE GREAT WOMAN OF SHUNEM

From the September 1943 issue of The Christian Science Journal


During his ministry in northern Israel, the prophet Elisha had occasion at times to pause at the little village of Shunem, which lies on rising ground at the eastern end of the plain of Esdraelon. Moreover, on each successive visit he was fed a light repast by one whom our Common Version significantly describes as "a great woman" ( II Kings 4:8 ).
