Jeremiah: The passionate prophet
Jeremiah was a remarkable prophet of judgment and hope, ministering at a crucial point in world history. Divinely called as a youth, his ministry of nearly 50 years foretold and witnessed the destruction of Jerusalem and the deportation to Babylon.
Jeremiah analysed this as the judgment of God upon a nation that had abandoned its covenant with Yahweh for devotion to fertility gods.
Jeremiah anguished over his confrontational role and what he could so clearly see coming. Yet he also anticipated the restoration of God’s people and foresaw the era of the new covenant and the coming of the Messiah.
Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
