Time – 593 – 560 B.C.
Ezekiel was taken captive by Nebuchadnezzar and taken to Babylon. This book records his activities during his exile in Babylon. His message was directed to his fellow countrymen who were still in Palestine, and later to his fellow captives in Babylon. He gave the good news to his fellow exiles that the nation, after being chastened, would be restored to their own land and God’s Kingdom would rise. This yet future Kingdom will last forever, and God’s people will never again be cast out.
