The book of Ezekiel

The book of Ezekiel was made up of 13 scrolls. The order in which these scrolls were put together has caused much confusion from this book, with people assuming that the temple must be rebuilt. Rather the temple has already been rebuilt and is no longer required.

The order of the book should be as such:

Scroll 1 – 6th year, 6th month, 5th day

Ezekiel 8:1 – 19:14
– Talks about present state of Israel

Scroll 2 – 7th year, 5th month, 10th day

Ezekiel 20:1 – 23:49
– Shows them how rebellious they have been.
– They will have an opportunity for restoration but need to acknowledge their guilt.
