If you want a good working definition of strange, Ezekiel gives you one.
First, an artist’s rendering of Ezekiel’s vision from Ezekiel 1. Pretty good, if you ask me…
Second, this week’s PowerPoint introduction to Ezekiel.
Finally, thanks to the VERY good people at Crossway, the introduction to the new, upcoming ESV Study Bible that you should preorder now, while still discounted. ESV Study Bible Intro to Ezekiel.
(FYI, it also includes an interview with the scholar who wrote this amazingly difficult commentary. His study method is mind-boggling. He has a sheet that has three columns: the Hebrew text, the Septuagint (greek), and the ESV…and he bases his comments off those texts. Enjoy!)
