THE PLACE IN THE STORY

Believe it or not, our place in the story is still “The Prophets of the Exile, Part 2,” but we are coming to a close with this section in the next week.  We dive into Ezekiel this week.  Here is some info on the prophet Ezekiel:

Ezekiel, a prophet and priest, was exiled to Babylon in 597 b.c. His ministry extended over at least twenty-three years. The book opens with his first dramatic vision of the “likeness” of the Lord himself. Ezekiel was keenly aware of God’s presence and power in human affairs. He addressed both the exiles and the people left in Judah with messages of warning and judgment, predicting the fall of Jerusalem. After Jerusalem’s fall (in 586), Ezekiel prophesied hope and reassurance for the people of Judah, who had then lost the focus of God’s covenant, the temple in Jerusalem. His vision of the valley of dry bones (ch. 37) is a classic picture of God’s ability to renew his people. [The Holy Bible: English Standard Version (Wheaton: Standard Bible Society, 2016), Eze.]

THE PLACE IN THE STORY

We continue reading through the prophet Jeremiah this week and then we move into Lamentations.  Here is some info on Lamentations:

The book of Lamentations is made up of five poems, each an expression of grief over the fall of Jerusalem. Like a eulogy at a funeral, these laments are intended to mourn a loss—in this case, the loss of a nation, Israel. The latter half of chapter 3 implies that the purpose behind the book’s graphic depictions of sorrow and suffering was to produce hope in the God whose compassion is “new every morning” (v. 23) and whose faithfulness is great even to a people who have been condemned for their own unfaithfulness. The author, while not identified in the book itself, may have been the prophet Jeremiah, who was said to have “uttered a lament for Josiah” (2 Chron. 35:25). Lamentations was probably written shortly after Jerusalem’s fall in 586 b.c. (Borrowed from The Holy Bible: English Standard Version (Wheaton: Standard Bible Society, 2016), La.)
