In this eight-part television series, Dr. Jeffrey Seif and Mrs. Sandra Levitt take viewers into one of the Bible’s most mysterious and fascinating books. Ezekiel forcefully predicts Israel’s re-emergence as a nation-state at “day’s end,” and prophesies that neighboring nation-states will marshal military resources to annihilate the fledgling state. Let’s consider pieces to Ezekiel’s end-time puzzle.
