The prophet Ezekiel was born in the Land of Israel and was exiled to Babylonia. His prophecies found in the first part of the book that bears his name in the Bible concern the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem as a result of the sins of the Jewish people
One of his most famous visions is that of the Valley of the Dry Bones. Ezekiel was transported to a valley filled with dry human bones. He was told to instruct the bones to join together and to be covered with sinews, flesh, and skin. This was followed by an instruction to the souls to enter the bodies and revive them.
The book of Ezekiel reminds us to seek out the Lord in the dark times of our lives, to examine our lives, and to align ourselves with the one true God.
