Ezekiel 21–48: A Theological Exposition of Sacred Scripture (Concordia Commentary | CC)



This commentary expounds the later chapters of Ezekiel according to the book’s classic prophetic outline. After judgment falls on Israel, oracles against the Gentile nations bring them under God’s judgment too. But God’s purpose is to lead all peoples to repentance and salvation through faith. God promises forgiveness, restoration, and resurrection through a new David, the Shepherd who will unite all believers. The book ends with an extended vision of the new temple and rejuvenated land in the new earth, where God’s redeemed people shall dwell under their Prince forever.

In the Logos edition of the Ezekiel 21–48, you get easy access to Scripture texts and to a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and with Passage Guides, Word Studies, and a wealth of other tools from Logos, you can delve into God’s Word like never before!

“Basic Christian confession insists on the unity of Scripture, although not uniformity, and not denying a certain progression or development in revelation. God reveals himself and his salvation more fully as one moves from Genesis to the ‘fulfillment’ of the OT at Christ’s first advent, and then toward Revelation and the ‘consummation’ of all things at Christ’s return.” (Page 1076)

“Until the second coming of Christ, we shall continue to be plagued by evil shepherds of one sort or the other” (Page 998)

“Biblical hermeneutics will extend it further into the ‘land’ of the church, ultimately also that of the church triumphant.34 The OT land promises are fulfilled in Christ, and so Christians enter their ‘promised land’ by being part of the body of Christ, the church, with the promise of entering the new heavens and earth after the resurrection (Mt 25:34). Thus the ‘very, very large army’ (Ezek 37:10) of risen people that will dwell securely in their own land is an OT depiction of the church triumphant, the multitude from every nation, glimpsed by John the Seer (Rev 7:9–17), which, raised bodily after the return of Christ, shall dwell forever in the new heavens and new earth with God in their midst (Revelation 21–22).” (Page 1084)

“‘The salvation which the Lord causes to flow down to His people from His throne will pour down from small beginnings in marvellously increasing fulness.’” (Page 1341)

“but the question remains whether the text implies any such conception as a literal bodily resurrection from the dead” (Page 1076)

Hummel works in accordance with the focus of the commentary series, which is on theological exposition rather than textual criticism. He utilizes a straightforward grammatico-historical method. . . . Hummel’s commentary successfully carries out the mission of the Concordia Commentary, and students of Ezekiel who are looking for a cogent but confessional theological commentary will want to add this one to their collections.
