Favorite painting/rendering of Ezekiel's vision?
« on: July 06, 2016, 01:37:36 AM »
My husband and I read some scripture almost every night. A recent reading was from Ezekiel, and I can't stop thinking about it! After reading it, my husband said, "God sent aliens!" (Jokingly) but that isn't how I imagined it at all. After a cursory Internet search for art, though, it sounds like my husband wasn't alone in his initial interpretation, lol. I was wondering if anyone has a favorite artwork depicting this awesome Biblical event.

ETA: I now have William Dawson's arrangement of "Ezekiel saw de wheel" running thru my head. It's worth a listen, but has definite ear worm potential!

Yes a lot of Ancient Aliens theorists refer to Ezekiel's wheel.

I listened to the song, I was not impressed by their performance.

But, but..what about the Nazca Lines and the Mayans in spacesuits and the testimony of St. Däniken?

Michael Heiser is an academic that focuses on the OT, he has a protestant background, but as a scholar he presents very objective and solid information. Sadly I think the above is in part a response to people trying to claim it's a biblical UFO, it was no such thing. It's not a painting but I think you might find it helpful.
