THE BOOK OF

EZEKIEL

 

Overview:

This book derives its name from the prophet who wrote it and whose ministry is described within it. It may be studied in five parts:

(1) The Call of Ezekiel to Prophesy (1;1-3:27),
(2) Rebukes to Judah and Jerusalem (4:1-24:27),
(3) Rebukes to Other Nations (25:1-32:32),
(4) Visions of the Restoration of Israel (33:1-39:29), and
(5) Visions of a Restored Temple (40:1-48:35).

Authorship:

Rabbinic and conservative Christian tradition assign authorship to this book to Ezekiel. The book's obvious internal structure and arrangement of subject matter (including the presence of more than four dozen dated prophecies, as well as the author's repeated references to the first person singular pronoun ā€œIā€) have generated few serious literary criticisms doubting the book's claim to have been written by this individual.

Composition Date:

Ezekiel's prophetic ministry and writing career encompassed a significant portion of the Babylonian captivity, which began ca. 586 BC. References to Josiah, who lived ca. 640-609 BC, and Gedaliah, Nebuchadnezzar's appointed puppet regent, who lived ca. 586 BC (cf. 2 King 25:22; Jeremiah 40:5), indicate that this book would have been compiled sometime after the destruction of Jerusalem but before the captives began to return about 70 years later.

Messianic Hope:

The Messiah as the Prince of the Eastern Gate
