Ezekiel’s Vision 2: Preliminary Bibliography

I’m listing below some of the many articles and commentaries on Ezekiel that I may reference occasionally throughout the forthcoming series, which I will cite by author name and page number. Others will be added to this bibliography as my study progresses, so this bibliography will be periodically updated.

The most useful commentary I have found is Othmar Keel’s Jahwe Visionen und Siegelkunst, unfortunately only available in German. Keel is probably the greatest living scholar of ancient Near Eastern iconography, and his book includes illustrations of nearly all ancient Near Eastern parallels to the types of things Ezekiel seems to be discussing.
