Ezekiel And Jeremiah: A Bible Study

Amazing Essays
In a bloody battle with Necho’s Egyptian army in 605 BC, Prince Nebuchadnezzar the son of Nabopolassar, pushed the Egyptian army back across the river and claimed Judah to Babylon. After Nebuchadnezzar departed back to his homeland to ascend to the throne, Judah began to revolt against the Babylonian rule which called for the now King to return to suppress the trouble. Upon his return the King had completed many projects to remind Judah of whom their king was. One of the projects was to take some of the Jews captive to Babylon. One of the captive was a teenager by the name of Daniel. The name Daniel means, “God my judge”. Daniel was a prophet and apocalyptic of God, living during the time of 605BC – 530BC; this was also the same time as Ezra, Ezekiel and Jeremiah. As you read and study Ezra, Ezekiel and Jeremiah you will find that some of the prophecies and actions are the same. The book of Daniel displays a …show more content…
Some believe the figure being spoken of will be fulfilled in the end times coming of the Antichrist. This time is believed to happen just before the second advent of the Lord Jesus Christ. While others believe when Christ came the first time he fulfilled part of this prophesy by putting an end to the need for a sacrifice. The problem with this theory is that it has an end, “He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven”. In this statement it is saying that the peace that Christ will bring will only last for seven years. The book of Revelation says, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” There shall be no more death, sorrow or crying, the words no more means forever. This goes to show that the time will be longer then seven years. In later verses Christ says, I am the Alpha and the Omega meaning the beginning and the

    First, he started with diplomacy by sending envoys to Greek-city states seeking “water and earth” - which acted as tokens of submission to Persian rule. Many city-states submitted, but the two major powers, Athens and Sparta, threw the envoys down a hole in response. This created an anti-Persian alliance between Sparta and Athens ending a period of conflict between the two cities. In 490 B.C.E., Darius sent an army led by Datis the Mede and Artaphernes the Younger across the Aegean Sea to Eretria. The Persians plundered the city and took its citizens as prisoners.…

    Salvation Before and After Christ Death “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3: 23); however, no sin can enter heaven (Revelation 21: 27); therefore, the forgiveness of sins is extremely important to those who desire heaven as their eternal home. Yet, there is confusion in the world about how or upon what conditions sins are forgiven today and that has developed, in large measure, by not “rightly dividing the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2: 15) Nonetheless, God does not change (Malachi 3: 6) and “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever. (Hebrews 13: 8); however, He does change the way he deals with humanity. For example, He doesn’t create women today in the same way He made Eve. (Genesis 2:…

    For this assignment, I chose to compare the story of the birth of Jesus Christ from the gospels of Matthew and Luke. The gospels of Matthew and Luke are the only two gospels in the New Testament that tell of the birth of Christ. Each writers account of how Christ was born, how he becomes the heir to the throne of Israel down to where he was born have been argued for many years. These scriptures are found in chapter 1, gospel of Matthew, and chapter 3, gospel of Luke. These two stories tell of the same things, but have different accounts.…

    The holy family fled to Egypt when they learned that King Herod intended to kill all the infants of that area. Jesus’ fleeing into Egypt can relate with the history of the Jews. The trip into Egypt symbolically represents the two most significant events in Jewish history, the Exodus from Egypt and the Babylonian Exile. The massacre of infants by Herod is comparative to Pharaoh’s killing of male children in Egypt. Moses escaped, just like Jesus and the angel’s words to Joseph are very similar to the Lord’s words to Moses in Exodus which was about the pharaoh’s death.…

    The future 7-year tribulation period is Daniel’s final 70th week of years (7 years). The Old Testament refers to this period as “the time of Jacob’s (Israel’s) trouble”. In that time, God will again turn His focus to The Nation of Israel, thus fulfilling eternal and unconditional promises spanning throughout the Old Testament, staring with Abraham.…

    At the time when Paul wrote to the Corinthians and Thessalonians, he witnessed a widespread misunderstanding of Christianity’s belief in the afterlife. Contemporary Christians believe that all of God’s faithful will share in the world to come, and that one’s time on Earth is a mere fraction of their eternal life in Heaven. In the Jewish religion of Paul’s time, the end of time fostered fear and grief in the Thessalonians and Corinthians. Many believed that only those who were alive at the second coming of Jesus would be carried up into heaven, while those who died before the end would return to Earth and miss the jubilation in Heaven. This misconception caused a panic on two fronts.…

    In the end, God never had forsaken David. God will never leave anyone, but there was an exception that God probably did not want to make. In Matthew 27:46 it says, “And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” Why did Jesus have to be forsaken by God? On the website jesusplusnothing.com the author says, “Christ was forsaken by God so that we might never be forsaken.…

    Another unforeseen problem in this doctrine is the Lord’s supper. The Bible states to partake of the emblems to “shew the Lord’s death till he come” (1 Corinthians 11:26). If we are only to observe this memorial until Christ returns and he has already returned (according to this false teaching), then there is no need to continue this practice. However, the proponents of this teaching still partake of these emblems, proving the hypocrisy and error in this doctrine. Finally, this perverse interpretation of prophecy eliminates virtually all of the hope that is characteristic of Christianity.…
