Description: Concordia Commentary: A Theological Exposition of Sacred Scripture is written to enable pastors and teachers of the Word to proclaim the Gospel with greater insight, clarity, and faithfulness to the divine intent of the biblical text. This commentary expounds the later chapters of Ezekiel according to the bookís classic prophetic outline. After judgment falls on Israel, oracles against the Gentile nations bring them under Godís judgment too. But Godís purpose is to lead all peoples to repentance and salvation through faith. God promises forgiveness, restoration, and resurrection through a new David, the Shepherd who will unite all believers. The book ends with an extended vision of the new temple and rejuvenated land in the new earth, where Godís redeemed people shall dwell under their Prince forever.
