By: Steve Shirley
A: God parted a river or sea 4 times in the Bible. Here is a list of these 4 times.
|God Parted A River Or Sea||Verses|
|1. God parted the Red Sea for Moses and the Israelites||(Ex 14:21-22)|
|2. God parted the Jordan River for Joshua and the Israelites||(Josh 3:14-17)|
|3. God parted the Jordan River for Elijah||(2 Kin 2:8-9)|
|4. God parted the Jordan River for Elisha||(2 Kin 2:14)|
** Some add (Gen 1:6-7) to this list.
***Interesting note: A number of sources say that the place (after crossing the Jordan) where Elijah was taken up to heaven in a chariot of fire after making Elijah his successor was the approximately same place where Moses died after making Joshua his successor (Deut 34:1-6).
