Ezekiel: Science and History

  1. "The firmament ... the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their heads above." 1:22

  2. Ezekiel proclaims that the world (which is flat and has four corners) is ending. 7:2, 6

  3. The firmament is over the heads of the cherubim. 10:1

  4. "Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers."
    This is the only clearly symbolic use of "dragon" in the Bible. 29:3

  5. God "will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light." To Ezekiel, the sun is just a little light that can be covered with a cloud, and the moon produces its own light. 32:7-8

  6. God will get so angry that his fury will come up in his face so that even the fish, birds, beasts, and bugs will shake when they see him. God will throw a tantrum, toppling every wall and mountain. 38:18-20
