Ezekiel

By Scott Brown, 2017/08/03

The book of Ezekiel takes place in Babylon during the Babylonian captivity. Therefore, Ezekiel is one of the “exilic” prophets. He encouraged the exiles to be faithful during the seventy-year exile. It is a story of glory departed and glory restored. God exiled His people to punish them, but that was not His only objective. He chastised them in order to restore them. Ezekiel’s wife dies in 587 at the beginning of the siege of Jerusalem.
