Ezekiel - Sistine Chapel - Michelangelo

We just learned about Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel painting of the prophets Isaiah, Daniel, Jonah, and Jeremiah.

Another prophet that Michelangelo painted on the ceiling was Ezekiel.

Ezekiel is holding a scroll, and wearing red robes with grey scarves and a hat.
He looks very strong even though he has a white beard showing he is old.

In the Bible Ezekiel was another prophet that had to tell people about bad things that were going to happen to God's people, but he also told about good things that would happen again some day much later.
