John Taylor writes, "For most Bible readers Ezekiel is almost a closed book...Their knowledge of him extends little further than his mysterious vision of God's chariot-throne, with its wheels within wheels, and the vision of the valley of dry bones." However, the structure of Ezekiel is simple and orderly, and that makes it easy to analyze for modern readers.
Christopher J. H. Wright masterfully opens our eyes to see and understand the message of Ezekiel. Ezekiel's vision of the glory of God--its departure and return--is first set within Israel's history and then in the culmination of God's promises in Christ. Embedded in the pattern of the strange, the bizarre and the wonderful is a word that still speaks to God's people today.
With this new volume, IVP's Black Dictionary series completes its coverage of the Old Testament canonical books. A true compendium of recent scholarship, the volume includes 115 articles covering all aspects of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, the twelve "minor prophets" and Daniel.
Discover firsthand the Reformers' innovative readings of the Old Testament prophets Ezekiel and Daniel. Familiar passages like Ezekiel's vision of the wheels or Daniel's four beasts are revitalized as they take the stage at this pivotal moment in history.
The books of Ezekiel and Daniel are rich in imagery taken up afresh in the New Testament. Over forty church fathers are cited in the commentary on Ezekiel, some of whom are here translated into English for the first time. A similar array of fathers are found within the commentary on Daniel. Michael Glerup and Kenneth Stevenson edit this collection.
