Interesting . . .
In 2 Kings 6:1-7, Elisha retrieves an axe head that fell into the water by throwing a stick in the water. What is the significance of this? Irenaeus writes that here we see a picture of the cross, which is the wood that has retrieved what was lost. "By means of a tree we were made debtors to God, [so also] by means of a tree we may obtain the remission of our debt." Interesting . . .
