The Torah Teachers discuss the Book of II Kings, chapter 8, and not only more of what we can learn from the prophet Elisha, but quite a few more of the related “difficult questions.”

Did Elisha mislead Hazael, on behalf of the King of Syria, for example? Was it a message, or a thinly-veiled suggestion, or even a warning?

Speaking of which, there DO seem to be more than a few references of warnings about marriages in this story of well.

And all of that also, as the teachers discuss, probably contains a lot more parallels to current events, too, than might be comfortable in post-Biblical AmeriKa — just as it was in the paganized Israel of the time.
