Is it possible for Spirit and flesh to dwell in harmony? Or is 'flesh' the enemy of the Spirit: an evil force that needs to be defeated?
The concept that 'flesh' is inherently sinful and therefore continuously opposed to God represents present day evangelical interpretation of Paul's New Testament rhetoric on flesh and the Spirit, yet Ezekiel prophecies that Yahweh will give His people a 'new heart of flesh' that is infused into fruitful life with His own Spirit. Understanding Ezekiel is an examination of Ezekiel 36:22-28 in order to develop an understanding of flesh in relationship to Yahweh's Spirit through attempting to understand the author's original intent. In studying the Hebrew form of this prophetic poetry it becomes clear that the inability is not Yahweh's, but the people's. Now author Sue Earl has compiled an analysis of God's word, based on the original authorial intention, that will illuminate the way we are meant to interpret scripture.
