Thoughts on Yehezkel

The Haftarah for Shabbat Chol HaMoed Sukkot is from Yehezkel chapter 38-39. It is insightful to view the context.

  • Chapter 36 - The prophecy of the Keitz Meguleh (see verse 8)
  • Chapter 37 - The Dry Bones, and the prophecy of the sticks of Yosef and Yehudah
  • Chapter 38 and 39 - The War of Gog uMagog
  • Second half of Chapter 39 (from verse 21 to the end) - The Geulah is spoken about in past tense, as something that has already taken place, as is Hester Panim.
  • Chapter 40 - The design for the 3rd Beit HaMikdash
