Understanding Ezekiel: a prophet’s response to trauma
Thursday 16 May 2024
19:00-20:30 (UK time)
In this single live session, we will explore what the biblical prophecy of Ezekiel has to teach us about the experience and impact of trauma. What can learn from Ezekiel that is relevant to our lives in the world today?
The prophet Ezekiel witnessed the defeat of his people in war. He was forcibly transported to a foreign land, where he saw his people live as slaves. Some of what Ezekiel says is strange, violent, obscene, scatological and misogynistic. Can we find meaning in the prophecy by understanding it as a personal response to trauma and can that in turn help us to understand people who have been traumatised?
