The book of the prophet Ezekiel is one of the most challenging reads in all of scripture. From its strange visions, weird sign acts and vulgar metaphors it is a book most Christians will hardly ever read. While Ezekiel begins with vivid depictions of Yahweh’s wrath at the sin of the Israelites the book ends in hope. One day the Exiles will be given a new heart and a new spirit and they will be God’s people and he will be their God.
