Naaman the Syrian

 

Pronunciation:  NAY-uh-muhn

Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  Yeshua 6:24

 

And there were many lepers in Israel in the days of Elisha the son of Shaphat, yet were none made clean again except Naaman the Syrian.

 

 

See:  Elisha

 

Summary:  While teaching in the synagogue in Nazareth, Yeshua was mocked by the local congregation for claiming to be the Anointed One. In response, Yeshua gave several examples found in Jewish scripture portraying how “no prophet is accepted in his own country” (Y:6:20). He referenced the story of Naaman (c. 845 BCE), a commander of the Syrian army who had leprosy. Yeshua recounted how there were many lepers in Israel, but God healed Naaman the Syrian — one considered by many to be unworthy of salvation. (See: Y:6:4-42).
