Prophets II - Ezekiel and Daniel
Liguori Catholic Bible Study
Author William Anderson
How did the prophets convey God's will through words and actions? What is a prophet's main responsibility? What can visions and symbols tell us about God? How does lectio divina move us to pray with scripture?
The prophets Ezekiel and Daniel dealt with a people living in captivity and persecution under foreign kings. Though they mainly addressed the current issues of their era, their warnings could predict future destruction or offer peace and redemption after a period of affliction. These messages were rarely welcome, and at times they came from unwilling messengers.
The narrative, study questions, reflections, key notes, prayers and an introduction to the spiritual practice of lectio divina will deepen your understanding of scripture.
