Taught That We May Teach

WE learn from this text something concerning Ezekiel himself. He was certainly one of the greatest of the prophets; his visions remind us of those of John, both for their brightness, splendour, and number, and yet this eminent prophet was, nevertheless, styled “son of man.” He is continually called by that name. The title is used over and over again throughout the book of his prophecies— “ Son of man”—...

Ezekiel 40:4

A Delusion Dispelled

WE are told in the opening verse of this chapter that certain of the elders of Israel came to the prophet and sat before him.

That...

Ezekiel 14:20

The Yoke Removed and the Lord Revealed

Despair Denounced and Grace Glorified

Aug 27 I HAVE read to you the vision of the resurrection of the dry bones: keep it in your minds that you may understand the text. The figure is a very apt, instructive, and impressive one. It is not, however, a mere figure: it is a parable based upon a remarkable representation of the resurrection of the dead. Although the children of Israel at that time knew little enough concerning the...
