Abstract

The study of the book of Ezekiel is full of many problems. In limiting ourselves to a study of his locale, it is necessary to declare our position in other areas of Ezekielian research. On the basis of the book's autobiographical nature, and its consistent use of planned sequence, visions, characteristic phrases, and language peculiarities throughout the book, we are assuming its essential unity. Chapters 2-24 present the evidence of Israel's sin and its punishment, while chapters 25-48 proclaim Israel's restoration. We regard the many attempts to assign large sections of the book to later writers as misleading. Our first task is to interpret the meaning of the book as it stands.
