OT Exam Today

I had my 2/3 of the way through the semester Old Testament Interpretation exam today. The exam consisted of 5 exegesises (if that is the plural of exegesis), 4 paragraph answers, and an essay question. The essay question I chose to answer was on the study guide, so I don't feel bad posting it here. I thought some of you might enjoy seeing one of the questions, so here it is:

"That they might know that I am the LORD. " Discuss the portrayal of Yhwh in the book of Ezekiel. Give specific examples of God's character, behavior, and treatment of both Ezekiel and Israel. Include the metaphors of the unfaithful wife and other troubling passages. As a minister, how would you relate these texts to your congregation?
