Have Archeologists Found The Home Of My Favorite Biblical Prophet?

It was Elisha who taught the world that you don't mess with bald people.

Kings 2 Verses 23-24

And Elisha went up from there to Bethel, and he was going up on the road and some ruffians came out of the city and jeered him, and said to him, “Go away, baldy; go away, baldy!” And he turned around and saw them, and he cursed them in the name of God. And two she-bears came out of the forest and tore apart forty-two boys of them.

In other words, it was Elisha who taught the world that you don’t mess with bald people.
