Elijah and Elisah multiplied bread, healed people, and resurrected the dead. What Christ did wasn't anything new.
Some time later the son of the woman who owned the house became ill. He grew worse and worse, and finally stopped breathing. She said to Elijah,
"What do you have against me, man of God? Did you come to remind me of my sin and kill my son?"
"Give me your son," Elijah replied. He took him from her arms, carried him to the upper room where he was staying, and laid him on his bed. Then
he cried out to the LORD, "O LORD my God, have you brought tragedy also upon this widow I am staying with, by causing her son to die?" Then he
stretched himself out on the boy three times and cried to the LORD, "O LORD my God, let this boy's life return to him!"
The LORD heard Elijah's cry, and the boy's life returned to him, and he lived. Elijah picked up the child and carried him down from the room into
the house. He gave him to his mother and said, "Look, your son is alive!" (1 Kings 17:17-23)
Naaman's servants went to him and said, "My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more,
then, when he tells you, 'Wash and be cleansed'!" So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him,
and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy. (2 Kings 5:13-14)
A man came from Baal Shalishah, bringing the man of God twenty loaves of barley bread baked from the first ripe grain, along with some heads of new
grain. "Give it to the people to eat," Elisha said.
"How can I set this before a hundred men?" his servant asked.
But Elisha answered, "Give it to the people to eat. For this is what the LORD says: 'They will eat and have some left over.' "Then he set it
before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of the LORD. (2 Kings 4:42-44)
Once while some Israelites were burying a man, suddenly they saw a band of raiders; so they threw the man's body into Elisha's tomb. When the body
touched Elisha's bones, the man came to life and stood up on his feet. (2 Kings 13:21)
