5. As it flows into the Dead Sea, what happens to the animals, fish, trees and people of the region (verses 7 – 12)? What would the river mean to a people dependent on walls and cisterns for water?

6. What might Ezekiel’s river represent? How do Jesus and the New Testament writers use the image of the river (John 4:14 and Revelation 22:2)?

  • dying of thirst
  • man overboard
