Ethiopic Ezekiel Reading Guide: The Valley of the Dry Bones

I've posted a new Ge'ez reading guide/vocabulary guide, this time for the text of Ezekiel 37:1-14 in Michael Knibb's new critical edition of Ethiopic Ezekiel.  If you try to buy it online, you'll notice the volume is pretty expensive.  Fortunately, in a stroke of luck or a moment of divine favour I stumbled across it on several months back when, for some reason, they were selling copies of it for $10.

Ezekiel's vision of the valley of dry bones is moving. My favourite visual interpretation comes from the St. John's Bible.

You can download the reading guide (and other guides for Jubilees and 1 Enoch) here.   Have fun!
