Anyone have opinions? Is it valid to compare the two passages? Are they different but similar visions of the same thing?
Some of the differences:
What John sees is called the New Jerusalem, but Eze apparently sees the Temple.
In Rev, the river of life flows from the throne through the middle of the street. In Eze, water begins as a trickle from under the gate of the Temple, and as it flows it increases until it is a great river which heals wherever it goes and flows into the sea, healing the waters.
In Rev, there is no sea. In Eze fishermen (fisher’s of men?) line the shores catching fish of all kinds.
Any thoughts on this verse:
Eze 47:11 But its swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they are to be left for salt.
