 +According to the theologian Norman Geisler, Ezekiel was called to his prophetic ministry in 593 B.C. (the fifth year of the captivity of King Jehoiachin). Ezekiel would have been about thirty years of age (1:1). Geisler continues with the statement that, //"The Book of Ezekiel was written between 593 and 570 B.C. (cf. 29:17).//  
 +Those dates have also been confirmed by another resource which states,  
 +//"We can date [Ezekiel'​s] first vision to 593 B.C. (1:1-3) and his last one in 571 B.C. (29:17), which means Ezekiel'​s ministry lasted about 22 years. Ezekiel may have written his book shortly after the end of his public ministry."//​
