This week in our Mystery of History studies, we talked about the prophet Ezekiel.
He was an interesting guy.
One small detail of his life was that God commanded him to eat a scroll. Grace drew a picture of this:
So, we made ourselves a little (edible) scroll out of a tortilla and honey. We wrote “Oh, Israel” on it, because Ezekiel prophesied during the time period just before the third and final invasion of King Nebuchadnezzar and the subsequent captivity in Babylon.
We decided a real, paper scroll probably wouldn’t have tasted quite so good. 🙂
We also talked about his experience of prophesying to a valley full of bones…and watching those bones come to life! Then we sang the old spiritual “Dry Bones.”
