By Joel K. T. Biwul

This publication addresses one of many ever-aching difficulties of human society – failed management in secular and sacred domain names. It issues out, from Ezekiel’s use of symbolism and shepherd motif, what society stands to undergo and or lose lower than a nasty human management constitution and undesirable governance. This performs out within the book’s x-ray of the features of sheep wanting a shepherd. Dr. Biwul contends that Ezekiel used symbolic sign-acts to indict either Israel’s undesirable and imperfect human shepherds in addition to the Babylonian exiles as being accountable for their plight for now not upholding the norms of Deuteronomic theology. really, he argues forcefully from Ezekiel’s shepherd motif significant factor liable for the exile of Israel as a covenant group is the big failure of its undesirable and imperfect human shepherds who didn't own the considered necessary shepherding characteristics inherent in Yahweh as leader shepherd of Israel. Biwul as a result attracts specific awareness to the truth of Ezekiel’s use of the popularity formulation while Yahweh acts ultimately to revive his humans. this can be rooted within the theological-eschatological motif which might come to its complete truth within the expected eschatological group whilst Yahweh could shepherd his people.
