Ezekiel - The First Read Through

Well, I finally finished the first read through of Ezekiel. I must admit that I skimmed a couple of chapters near the end when the temple was being measured. There are some interesting items to look at. There is the water coming out from under the temple which could be a metaphor of the River of Life. There is also the interesting idea of trees on each side of the river bank that produces fruit every month and the leaves are for the healing of the nations. Then there is the whole concept of animal and grain sacrifices while Jesus is sitting on the throne.

This is a lot of cool stuff to grapple with and try to figure out. I will start reading the commentaries and studying the text and keep you posted.
