Weekly Message: Ezekiel 13-24

  1. Allegory 13-24
    1. This big section is intense with lots of prophetic imagery. It starts with the pronouncement of God’s judgment on prophets and those who worship and follow other gods. Then Jerusalem is compared by use of allegories to different things. A burnt vine, an adulterous wife, prostitute sisters, cooked over fire, and eagles and a vine. All of these represent Israel’s unfaithfulness to the covenant of their God. In this section we also see a lament, Babylon as God’s sword, and Ezekiel’s wife’s death representing the fall of Jerusalem. All of these allegories are used to catch your attention and to realize the severity of their sin and the reality of judgment.
