The Book of Ezekiel

147 The Book of Ezekiel

Ezekiel, the third-longest book of the Bible, contains one example after the other of some of the most graphic visions and imagery found anywhere in God’s Word.  Unfortunately, the book is too often neglected and misunderstood in spite of its indispensable contribution to God’s complete revelation.  Consider the challenges faced by this prophet as he sought to reach the captives in Babylon entrusted to his care, as he sought to arouse them from their lethargy with the warnings and detailed prophecies of the future, and as he encouraged them to keep their faith in their restoration of the land and their glory yet to be realized under their future King David.
