Introduction to Ezekiel
Ezekiel’s name means, “God will strengthen.” Like Jeremiah he was a priest as well as a prophet. He lived among the Jews who were carried away captive by Nebuchadnezzar and settled on the river Chebar, in the north of Mesopotamia. He began to prophesy about six years before Jerusalem was destroyed; and was therefore contemporary with Jeremiah, prophesying partly before and partly after the destruction of Jerusalem.
