Do these two chapters appear to be referring to the same events?
Duet 30 would have been recorded and spoken by Moses just before the people crossed the Jordan under Joshua. Ezekiel 36 would have been prophesied @1000 yrs later while the people were in the Babylonian captivity; the curse of the law of Moses; which had been prophesied in Deut 28:15 etc and which Deut 30 mentions.
Wouldn't it seem appropriate for God to give Daniel and Ezekiel additional clarity and instruction about things Moses prophesied about; the return from Babylonian captivity and the subsequent circumcision of the heart when that time came upon them?
In chapter 9 Daniel states that the babylonian captivity is the curse of the law of Moses as recorded in some of the preceding chapters of Deut such as 28:15. His prayer in chapter 9, especially vs 11-13 acknowledges the babylonian captivity as the curse of the law of Moses.Originally Posted by Deut 30
This was prophsied by Ezekiel who like Daniel was a prophet during the Babylonian captivity and while Jerusalem laid in waste.3That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee; and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee. [DURING THE BABYLONIAN CAPTIVITY]
4If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:
5And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.
6And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.
7And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.
8And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.
9And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:
Arent vs 6 of Duet 30 and vs 26,27 of Ezekiel 36 in reference to the New covenant AND new words of Christ?Originally Posted by Ezekiel 36
Wasn't the return to the land specified to be after the Babylonian captivity?
Since these were referring to events following the babylonian captivity and dispersion; which would be followed by the circumcision of the heart and the latter end of the mosaic covenant; why do modern prophecy teachers; Joel Rosenberg; Lahaye, dispensationalists, etc... disbelieve and reject them as fulfilled?
Since Paul treats Deut 30:6-19 as fulfilled in his referral to it in Romans 10:6-9; isn't he also including Ezekiel 36:26,27 as fulfilled? In fact some of the words form Romans 10 seem to be referring to Ezekiel 36 more than Duet 30.
