“Lesson 44: ‘Every Thing Shall Live Whither the River Cometh’” Old Testament Class Member Study Guide (2001), 28
“Lesson 44,” Old Testament Class Member Study Guide, 28
Study the following scriptures:
Ezekiel 47:1, 6–12. Ezekiel sees a river flowing from the temple that gives life to the desert and heals the Dead Sea.
Ezekiel 47:2–5. Ezekiel measures the river’s depth and discovers that the water gets deeper each time he wades into it.
According to Ezekiel’s vision, what changes will take place in the Judean wilderness and the Dead Sea, which are east of Jerusalem, because of the river flowing from the temple? (See Ezekiel 47:6–12.) How does the water of life available in the temple heal and give life to marriages? families? our ancestors? the Church?
