Key People: Ezekiel, People of Israel
Summary: Ezekiel was called by God in a supernatural and amazing vision that displayed God’s greatness. Ezekiel lived among the Jewish exiles in Babylon, who had been taken captive when King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple. God sent Ezekiel to proclaim a message of judgment for sins committed. But, in His mercy, God offered hope through the prophet and promised that the people would one day be restored to the land for His name’s sake.
About God: God is sovereign over all things. His holiness demands that sin be punished for the glory of His name.
