To interject, before you can blow smoke in someone's face:
Christianity plays the Iraneaus card that he described it profoundly:
"Irenaeus' conjecture about a relationship between the four faces and the four Gospels continued to fascinate Christian commentators in subsequent centuries, even as their tendency to reshuffle the face-to-Gospel assignments cast doubt on it. Augustine, like Irenaeus, assigned the ox to Luke, but gave the lion to Matthew, the man to Mark and the Eagle to John (The Harmony of the Gospels 4.10). Jerome, by contrast, heard the lion's roar in the opening command of Mark to "prepare the way of the Lord" and felt himself soaring to heaven on eagles' wings as he read the prologue of John, but stuck with the man for Matthew and the ox for Luke. Jerome's classification has proven to be the most durable, but commentators have periodically revisited the question and proposed yet other assignments (see Jerome, Commentary on Ezekiel 1.1; in the book Cosmic Codes, 1999, evangelical writer Chuck Missler suggests an assignment of the lion to Matthew, the ox to Mark, the man to Luke and the eagle to John)."
...I disagree, especially, since Exekial was written at least three centuries before Iranaeus was even a twinkle in his Dad's eye.
But to show logical contrast:
"The point of all this is to note the fact that none of the elements of Ezekiel's vision are foreign to religious iconography of the times (or before Ezekiel's era). The cloud / storm element of the vision is very common to the Old Testament, and is chiefly aimed at Baal, the king of the gods at Ugarit (the storm god), which is outside Babylon, both terribly common to Israelite thinking. Hence the vision of Ezekiel, in many respects, is an amalgam of familiar (early) Israelite theophanic portrayals of Yahweh and Babylonian elements, all designed to put Yahweh "in the picture," ousting the pagan god(s). "
Understanding Iconography and Symbolism are not your strongest study, huh?
Besides, why would you even say that? Did you even read my post?
