The author of the Book of Ezekiel shows himself as Ezekiel, the son of Buzi (Ezekiel 1:3) who was living in Babylon. Ezekiel describes his calling to be a prophet, by going into great detail about his encounter with God who rode upon a chariot of four wheels guided by Cherubs (Ezekiel 1). For the next five years he prophesies of the destruction of Jerusalem and its temple. However, Ezekiel other prophets like Jeremiah, witnessed the fulfillment of their prophecies when Jerusalem was finally taken by the Babylonians. Ezekiel was about 50 years old when he began to have visions of a new Temple. He served as a prophet for around 20 years.

The book of Ezekiel comes as a warning to his people, but also a warning for further generations… any time a nation loses its values and turns to wickedness, they will be destroyed.
