Or is fleshA the enemy of the Spirit: an evil force that needs to be defeated? The concept that fleshA is inherently sinful and therefore continuously opposed to God represents present day evangelical interpretation of Pauls New Testament rhetoric on flesh and the Spirit, yet Ezekiel prophecies that Yahweh will give His people a new heart of fleshA 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 Yahwehs Spirit through attempting to understand the authors original intent. In studying the Hebrew form of this prophetic poetry it becomes clear that the inability is not Yahwehs, but the peoples. Now author Sue Earl has compiled an analysis of Gods word, based on the original authorial intention, that will illuminate the way we are meant to interpret scripture.
