Does the book of Ezekiel hint that the God of the Jews is not who they think he is?

    Ezekiel 28 talks about the "King of Tyre" and in Chap 28 starting vs 13 what he is made of

    It calls him a cherub and also lists these stones he was adorned with (Here is something interesting....), "every precious stone adorned you:

    carnelian, chrysolite and emerald,
    topaz, onyx and jasper,
    lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl." Now those are 9 stones.

    In Exodus also chap 28 starting vs 13 is how the high priest breastplate was to be made. 12 stones for the 12 tribes, but notice the names and order of the stones. "The first row shall be carnelian, chrysolite and beryl; 18 the second row shall be turquoise, lapis lazuli and emerald; 19 the third row shall be jacinth, agate and amethyst; 20 the fourth row shall be topaz, onyx and jasper."

    The stones for rows 1,2, and 4 match 100% the stones on this cherub in Ez.

    Through your widespread trade
    you were filled with violence,..... you have desecrated your sanctuaries

    What sanctuaries and what violence? The only sanctuaries I recall are those the priests had set up. And violence and things commanded that in the first chapter of Isaiah the supposed same entity is denying ever commanding, or 2 powers at play?

    Interesting , one thing I have noticed is that just because it's in the bible doesn't mean the original writing was refuring to the same God. Take a look at the book of proverbs, said to be mostly written by Solomon, yet Wallis E Budge dug up writings that were the same yet in Egyptian written by Amenope and found to be several hundred years older. We also know that the original story of the flood involved many gods and the two main gods were Enlil and Enki. Enlil wanted to kill mankind with a flood and Enki saved them by telling a man to save himself and others by building a boat.

    It would be interesting to see if there are other writings found out side of the bible talking about these Stones and which gods they relate to.

    If any wisdom listed came from the Egyptians, it came from God anyway, even if only from their conscious. And if isolated extractions were made, the context is totally different than pagan thought.

    I read the title of this thread and the OP twice and still could not determine what the point was.

    Well spotted, EndofMysteries. You are clearly observant and a thinker. The king of Tyre must have been king of a violent and superstitious nation. Perhaps the priestly stones suggest that he was a good ruler at first but lost his way.
