Religion of the Prophets: The Message of Ezekiel
Aug. 11, 1952
Aug. 11, 1952. Running time: 32:51. An interpretation of the social, historical, and narrative context of the biblical prophet, Ezekiel. Thurman considers the influence of Ezekiel's visions on religious art, prophecy, Protestantism, and the basic insights of Jesus of Nazareth. Thurman explores what he sees as the three important aspects of Ezekiel's thinking: an awareness of the holiness of God, a sense of personal responsibility for one’s own actions, and a prophetic propensity for double-entendre.
