Join us this January and February in Fellowship Hall at 11 am as we sample portions of the book of Ezekiel. All are welcome!
Ezekiel was a priest but his role was changing. The Israelites understanding of God was tied to a specific land (Israel) and a specific place (the Temple). It was here that God resided. The Babylonian Empire had other ideas. The book of Ezekiel chronicles the time period before and after the destruction of the temple by the Babylonian Empire. In addition to this, the Babylonians were deporting the Israelites out of Israel and into exile in Babylon. Everything Ezekiel and the Israelites knew was changing. It is in this experience of dislocation that Ezekiel begins his prophetic ministry.
