In Ezekiel 1–20, the first of two volumes of commentary on the Scripture attributed to the third major Old Testament prophet, Moshe Greenberg uses accessible prose to explain Ezekiel’s ecstatic, erratic, almost incomprehensible otherworldly visions and prophecies. One of this century’s most respected biblical scholars, Greenberg translates the text, identifies the critical issues raised by the book, and offers an impressively balanced, thoroughly holistic interpretation of Ezekiel.
Greenberg exhibits the characteristic care and special sensitivity of a world-renowned scholar in covering the first 37 chapters of the book. Drawing upon the rich history of Jewish and Christian interpretation, he rigorously engages the biblical text with all the tools of historical critical analysis. He employs ancient and modern sources in his elucidation of this most difficult prophetic book, translating the text into flowing English that captures the richness and subtleties of the problematic Hebrew original. Using illustrations from a vast array of literature on Ezekiel, Greenberg brings the book’s prophecies and people alive for modern readers.
