Overview

Join Old Testament scholar Daniel Block as he helps recover the message of an enigmatic prophet. Book Study: Ezekiel (OT362) begins with an introduction to the book and its author. Dr. Block then explores the text according to its genres including the different roles—the visionary, watchman, dramatist, debater, spinner of parables and fanciful tales, prosecutor, and herald of both bad and good news—Ezekiel plays. Dr. Block examines well-known passages like the valley of the dry bones or the Gog and Magog oracle, as well as the confusing imagery found in the book. He concludes the course by looking at the outpouring of the Spirit in the Old and New Testaments focusing on what the outpouring of the Spirit signifies and differentiating between the meaning of the spirit being put into a people and being poured out on them.

Dr. Daniel Block, professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, has been teaching God’s Word for more than 30 years.

It has been a special joy for Dr. Block to watch students, who often take introductory courses in Old Testament only because they are required to do so by the curriculum, suddenly awaken to the fact that the Old Testament is understandable and its message is both life-giving and relevant for modern, everyday life.

Dr. Block has published a number of books and essays in scholarly journals. The paradigm for his research and ministry is set by Ezra, as described in Ezra 7:10: he committed himself to the study the Torah of Yahweh, to put it into practice, and to teach his revealed will in Israel. This means constantly asking serious questions of the Scriptures: What does the text say? Why does the text say it like that? What did the text mean to the original audience? What does the text have to say to me today? In order to answer these questions, one needs to understand both the worlds out of which the biblical texts arose and the worlds in which modern people live.
