Blogging through the Alphabet Men and Women of the Bible

Getting creative this week with the letter Y.

Young Maid (Slave) of Israel

We find the story of the young maid in II Kings 5. Naaman has leprosy. We see in verse two of chapter five that this young maid (slave) waited on Naaman's wife. She was there against her will, but she still served. She told Naaman about Elisha and that he should go see him.Naaman trusted the young maid and went to see Elisha and was healed of his leprosy.

II Kings 5:1-3 ~ Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the Lord had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper. And the Syrians had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman's wife. And she said unto her mistress, Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! for he would recover him of his leprosy.

Young Lad who had a Lunch

We can find the story of the young lad, who had five loaves of bread and two fish for his lunch, in the book of John. Everyone (over 5,000) were hungry. The disciples did not know what they were going to feed the large crowd. Jesus asked them what they were going to do and it was Andrew who found the young lad and told Jesus what he had with him. The young lad gladly gave his lunch and everyone in the crowd was able to eat and there were also plenty of leftovers (12 baskets).

John 6:8-13 ~ One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him, There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so many? And Jesus said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Jesus took the loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they would. When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten.
