Transcript of Ezekiel
Ezekiel & His Message
- Jehoiakim rebels: 598 BC
- Jehoiachin becomes king and surrenders: 597 BC
- 10,000 exiles are taken to Babylon--Ezekiel the priest is one of them
(note more of a Leviticus theme)
Judgment on Israel
"And He said to me, 'Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great abominations which the house of Israel are committing here, so that I would be far from My sanctuary? But yet you will see still greater abominations.'"
Judgment on the Nations
"Then they will know that I am Yahweh."
Ezekiel 28:23, 24, 26; 29:6, 16, 21; 32:15
"Ezekiel's primary audience is the Hebrew exiles in Babylon, who are struggling to make sense of their exile and the world events that have shattered their lives."
1) You've broken the covenant; you'd better repent!
2) No repentance? Then judgment! Judgment will also come on the nations.
3) Yet there is hope beyond judgment of a glorious restoration for Israel/Judah and the nations.

"There is no place anywhere where His lordship will be disputed or where His great name will be rivaled. The nations face judgment particularly because of their response to Israel. Ammon, for instance, rejoiced over the profanation of the sanctuary (25:3, 6). Moab and Seir cursed Israel (25:8, whereas Edom and the Philistines will face vengeance because they took revenge upon Israel (25:12-17). Tyre anticipated financial profits from Israel's fall (26:2). ...Egypt will also face judgment (chaps. 29-32) as the great dragon opposed to Yahweh (29:3; 32:2). It will be judged because it was a basis of false confidence for Israel (29:6-10, 16)."
"And the name of the city from that day shall be,
'The LORD is there

Ezekiel 40-48: His Presence Restored
"As in many other portions of prophetic literature that describe Israel's restoration, interpreters take differing views on Ezekiel 40-48. Some argue that it describes a literal temple that will be built in Jerusalem and used during the literal 1000-year reign of Christ. Others suggest that the focus of the passage may be on that future millennial temple but that it also has allusions and connections to the final new city of Jerusalem in Revelation 21-22. They underscore the prophets' tendency to merge future pictures from differing time periods together into one vision. Still others maintain that Ezekiel 40-48 is almost totally symbolic and is thus fulfilled primarily in Christ (the new temple) and yet perhaps also pointing to the heavenly city in Revelation 21-22)."
