Disciple Bible Study: Week 12, Reading 5

I’m participating in Disciple Bible Study, a 34 week intensive. For five days, we have different readings.  I have decided to document my initial noticings from a close reading of the scripture. Well, an attempt at a close reading.

Week 12 Theme:  God Restores the People

Readings: Ezekiel 1-5, 37


  • 1:20 – spirit!!  Just goes to show we didn't invent the spirit.
  • 1:28 – G*d is like a rainbow
  • 3:2 – Ezekiel eats the scroll.  Check with Revelation & John of Patmos.
  • 4:4-8 – this interlude is weird.  Lieing on your left side or right side.
  • 5:7 – Israel is a trouble maker.  J
  • 37:11 – the bones are Israel
  • 37:24 – David shall be the king.  Hmmm.  What is the upcoming hierarchy?  There are no more Davidic rulers?  Were the Maccabees "Davidic?"  How is this resolved?
