Ezekiel 17:1-3

When reading Ezekiel, I was mesmerized by this verse about a colorful, enormous eagle that grasped a cedar tree top.  I wondered what it meant.

The Reformation Study Bible by R. C. Sproul says, “Ezekiel propounds an allegory.  The great eagle is the imperial might of Babylon, represented by Nebuchadnezzar.”



Genesis 37:23-24, Genesis 41:15-41, Daniel 6, Daniel 2:24-49

Our kids, Emily and Ethan, heard about Joseph (of the Old Testament) today.  And, not long ago, I finished reading the book of Daniel.  I noticed the two men had interesting similarities.  First, Joseph was thrown into a pit and Daniel was thrown into a den of lions.  Second, Joseph interpreted Pharoah’s dream and Daniel interpreted King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream.  Finally, Joseph was put in charge of Egypt and Daniel was put in charge of Babylon.

Since Daniel and Joseph had so much in common, if they had been in the same time period,  in the same setting, I think they could have been friends.  But maybe they’ve already bonded in Heaven…
