In today’s passage, God is setting the record straight. According to Merriam-Webster, to “set the record straight” is to “provide the facts about something that people have a false understanding or idea about.” To help illustrate this point, refer to the rocky relationship between Bill Belichick and Tom Brady, two future NFL Hall of Fame inductees. While employed by the same organization, the New England Patriots, rumors swirled that the two successful figureheads did not have a good relationship. After Brady retired, however, he invited his former coach on his podcast to publicly clear the air. Here’s an article detailing their conversation: https://www.nbcsportsboston.com/nfl/new-england-patriots/emotional-tom-brady-opens-up-about-relationship-with-bill-belichick/285072/. As with Brady and Belichick on the Let’s Go! Podcast, so in Ezekiel 18:1–32 the Lord is trying to set the record straight by fixing common misconceptions and misunderstandings.
