Ezekiel 1:28

Ezekiel opened his book by informing us he was a Judean priest who had been taken into Babylonian exile at the same time that Israel's king, Jehoiachin, was also captured. There were three separate occasions when Jews were deported to Babylon, and Ezekiel was among those in the second group of deportees. He was one of four priests who were also called by God to be a prophet, the other three being Jeremiah, Zechariah, and John the Baptist.
