ONE OF the most cryptic and fascinating sections in the entire Bible is the focus of our study this week: On the surface, it’s a message from God to the Prince of Tyre, who, at the time of Ezekiel, was a man named Ithobaal III. However, it’s clear from the context that this was really directed at the divine rebel from Eden.
We discuss the location of Tyre and why the “heart of the seas” was more likely a reference to the abode of the Canaanite god El or the Sumerian god Enki; the true identity of Daniel in Ezekiel 28:3 (it probably wasn’t the prophet; Danel is called a “follower of Rapiu” [a god whose name is the singular form of “Rephaim”] and a “Man of Hermon” in the Ugaritic text); the role of the cherubim on Eden, which Ezekiel called “the holy mountain of God,” and the parallels to Isaiah 14.
