Bible teaching with an emphasis on Israel, prophecy and the Jewish roots of Christianity
Series: “Ezekiel and the MidEast ‘Piece’ Process”
In this eight-part television series, Dr. Jeffrey Seif and Mrs. Sandra Levitt take viewers into one of the Bible’s most mysterious and fascinating books. Ezekiel forcefully predicts Israel’s re-emergence as a nation-state at “day’s end,” and prophesies that neighboring nation-states will marshal military resources to annihilate the fledgling state. Let’s consider pieces to Ezekiel’s end-time puzzle.
His name means “God strengthens.” Reared as a priest in Jerusalem, Ezekiel finds himself among the exiles who are taken to Babylon. His encounter with God in a heavenly vision launches his prophetic message to a wayward people.
This segment examines particular pieces of prophecy, noting Judah’s painful downfall, and God’s everlasting mercy even so through His promise to gather and rebuild Israel—something that is happening today.
Israel’s re-emergence as a nation is dramatized through a startling vision of skeletons rising from their graves, forming a mighty nation. Independence Hall in Tel Aviv serves as the backdrop to a remarkable prophecy fulfilled in our generation.
