From the Hebrew Biblical personal name Yechezkel – ‘God will strengthen’.

Ezekiel prophesied that the exiles from both Judah and Israel would return to Palestine, leaving none in the Diaspora. In the imminent new age a new covenant would be made with the restored house of Israel, to whom God would give a new spirit and a new heart.

What are some major themes of Ezekiel?Themes

  • Betrayal.
  • Compassion and Forgiveness.
  • Dreams, Hopes, and Plans.
  • Justice and Judgment.
  • Power.
  • Versions of Reality.

Ezekiel’s first vision comes when a stormy wind blew in from the north, bringing with it a shiny cloud that contains ‘Yahweh’s chariot borne by supernatural creatures’. These “four living creatures” are identified in Ezekiel 10:20 as cherubim.

Each of Ezekiel’s cherubim have four faces, that of a man, a lion, an ox, and an eagle.

The four faces represent the four domains of God’s rule: the man represents humanity; the lion, wild animals; the ox, domestic animals; and the eagle, birds. … Three of the four faces are the same – man, lion and eagle – but where chapter one has the face of an ox, Ezekiel 10:14 says “face of a cherub”.
