Bible Reading Coach, Week 36 (Ezekiel 13-30) Prophesying From A Distance

How do we read a book when the prophecy is literal (time-stamps included), the visions are metaphorical, and the prophet lives 500 miles away?

Last week we started the book of Ezekiel by reading just a few chapters. Now we’ll spend the next two weeks in this epic book.

In this week’s reading, we’ll come to the end of the prophecies against Jerusalem because this is when the siege of the city finally happens, followed by its quick fall. We’ll also read about Ezekiel as he endures a huge personal loss, followed by a command from God to do something that will help us understand how difficult the role of the prophet truly is.

But there’s hope as well. Before the week ends, we’ll see the tone shift from the condemnation of Jerusalem to the condemnation of her enemies. This will set the table for the last segment of the book where God will bring them hope in their sorrow.

The Bible Reading Coach podcast is designed to help anyone read through the Bible in a year. In 10-15 minutes each Friday, I’ll introduce you to the passage for the following week, including:

  • What it’s about
  • How to deal with challenging passages
  • How the original readers saw it
  • How it applies today
  • And much more

After listening, take the next week to read the passage on your own. This time you’ll have a clearer understanding of it.
