The Land and the Book

Air Date November 1, 2014


The prophet Ezekiel gives a detailed description of a future temple…complete with animal sacrifices. But should his vision be interpreted literally, or symbolically? This week’s guest is Dr. J. Carl Laney, and he’s written a book on the subject...Messiah’s Coming Temple. We’ll talk with Carl about Ezekiel’s vision, and its relationship to Jesus’ future reign as king.

Then in our devotional time we’ll conclude our drive down the Jordan Valley by stopping at Jericho to see what Micah the prophet really meant when he told us to view God’s mighty work “from Shittim to Gilgal.”
