Top Highlights

“Throughout the vision, the action revolves around the transformative force designated by the Hebrew term rûaḥ, which simultaneously carries the meanings of wind, breath, and spirit (vv 1, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 14). Yahweh’s rûaḥ—the same ‘spirit’ that Yahweh placed within the exiles for transformation in Ezek 36:27—serves as the agent that creates new life in the midst of death through the prophetic word.” (Page 300)

“Christian preachers today function in an environment where it is always more popular to preach peace and prosperity—a smiling, happy gospel of personal betterment—and more demanding to engage in prophetic criticism of the social, economic, and militaristic structures that shape contemporary society and, often, the church.” (Page 242)

“the image of very dry (v 2) bones indicates a situation of long-dead remains absolutely devoid of any remaining life” (Page 300)

“activities of the empire and continue religious practices like circumcision and Sabbath” (Page 29)

“OT priestly theology to respond to the trauma associated with the Babylonian exile.” (Page 22)
