From the raising of a widow's son to the resurrection of God's Son

"The Lord heard Elijah’s cry, and the boy’s life returned to him, and he lived" (1 Kings 17:22).
The raising of the widow's son confirmed Elijah's authority as God's prophet. Here, we look beyond God's prophet, Elijah, to God's Son, Jesus. We look beyond the raising of the widow's son to the resurrection of Jesus, God's Son. In the resurrection of Jesus, God is confirming the authority of Jesus as His Son - "Jesus Christ our Lord, ... declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead" (Romans 1:3-4).
