- Ezekiel was a prophet in exile. Along with other Israelites, he had been captured and sent to Babylon several years before Jerusalem was finally destroyed.
- In Jerusalem, Ezekiel would have been a priest serving in the temple. In Babylon, he was among “them of the captivity,” and he “sat where they sat” (Ezekiel 3:15), hundreds of miles from the temple and with little hope of returning to the beloved house of God.
- Then one day Ezekiel had a vision. He saw “the glory of the Lord” (Ezekiel 1:28)—not back in the temple at Jerusalem but there in Babylon among the exiles. The wickedness in Jerusalem, he learned, had become so severe that God’s presence was no longer there.
- What did the Lord tell Ezekiel about his responsibilities?
- What words of comfort and encouragement did the Lord give?
- How can I share God’s words with others?
Who can I share God’s words with today?
Follow the Prophet (Children’s #110) last verse
- These verses are symbols. What do you think they mean?
- The living prophet is like a watchman, to warn people. What is he warning them about?
- How can I follow the words of our living prophet?
What is something I can do today to listen to the prophet?
- The Israelites wondered how they were supposed to live when in exile. What does the Lord tell them?
- What do you think it means to “trust to [your] own righteousness”?
- What would you say to someone who feels that the righteous person and the wicked person described in Ezekiel 33:12–19 are not being treated fairly?
- How can this apply to us? Do we have times we feel that things are not fair?
- What phrases do you find in these verses that help you understand what it means to repent?
What can I do next time I think things are unfair?
- The Lord refers to leaders of His people as “shepherds.”
- As you read, consider what this title suggests to you about what it means to be a leader.
- Who are the “sheep” the Lord wants you to feed?
- How can you follow the example the Savior sets as our shepherd?
How can I be a shepherd today?
- The gathering of Israel is portrayed in Ezekiel 37 through two symbols.
- The first symbol is dead bones being brought to to life. What do you think this means?
- The second symbol (see verses 15–28) involves two sticks, which many scholars interpret as wooden writing boards joined by a hinge.
- The first stick of Judah is the Bible, and the stick of Joseph is the Book of Mormon (since Lehi was descended from Joseph).
- What do these verses teach you about the role of the scriptures in the gathering of Israel?
- What does 2 Nephi 3:11–13 (a prophecy about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon) add to your understanding?
How can I help gather Israel?
