And He said unto me: ‘Son of man, can these bones live?’ And I answered: ‘O Lord God, Thou knowest.’ EZEKIEL 37:3 (The Israel Bible™)
This chapter contains Ezekiel’s famous vision of the valley of dry bones coming to life. In the prophet’s time, Israel was destroyed and the people scattered to the four corners of the earth. Yet, when God asks Ezekiel “can these bones live?” he doesn’t express doubt or hopelessness. He answers that anything can happen if it is God’s will! In our days, we stand witness to this truth, as from the ashes of the Holocaust came the birth of the modern State of Israel.
