Welcome to Ezekiel 36-39, the Ezekiel Tetrad – version 1.
In fact, I’m not even sure that I should call this version 1. It should more accurately be called a BETA version of what this website will be. However, this website will never actually be completed. It will always be changing as we learn more and more about what is happening, and how that fits in with what Ezekiel 36-39 describes to us.
Now, I notice that you have a couple questions. Why did I choose Ezekiel 36-39 as the core passages for discussing The Return of Israel? And, what is this Tetrad?
Well, I read my bible through every year – the whole thing, including the deadly boring parts that talk about who was born to who. And NOTHING sticks out at me like Ezekiel 36-39. These four chapters are the most impressive discussion of Israel in the last days that you will read anywhere in the bible. Other portions of the bible may illuminate many other different aspects of what happens, and I certainly discuss them. But, none of those other passages brings it all together like the Ezekiel Tetrad.
Yes, the Ezekiel Tetrad. Tetrad is a word more commonly found in mathematics. It means a unit with four parts. Merriam-Webster defines it like this: a group or arrangement of four.
Of course, I like my definition better.
I’d thought about calling these four chapters The Ezekiel Quartet, and it has a certain ring to it. But then, you might be expecting popular songs in four part harmony.
So, no Ezekiel Quartet.
I’d also thought about The Ezekiel Quadrad. It wasn’t as nice as the one above, and it had the added problem of making people think of certain equations in mathematics.
It does have a certain ring to it, and it’s pretty unique.
How many Tetrads do YOU know?
So, here we are.
I hope that you get something out of the site. I recommend that you start with my introduction to The Ezekiel Tetrad here.
