  1. Jeremiah

  2. Jeremiah • “The Prince of Prophets” • “By far the greatest and most informative voice of Judah’s final pre-exilic generation was that of Jeremiah, who is significant both as historical source and theological interpreter.” Eugene H. Merrill

  3. Jeremiah“Jehovah Establishes” • Origin • Anathoth, 3 miles NE of Jerusalem • Family • Father a Levitical priest • Audience • Judah • Canonicity • II Kings 24:18-25:30 • almost identical with Jeremiah 52 • Quoted or referred to in: • Matthew 2:17; 16:14; 27:9-10, Mark, I Corinthians, II Corinthians, and Hebrews • Jeremiah is named 9 times outside of his book. • Title • “A Heartbroken Prophet with a Heartbreaking Prophecy”

  4. If I was preaching or teaching Jeremiah, I would resort to: • Handfuls on Purpose • Volume 9, pages 57-95 • 24 lessons • Expositions of Holy Scripture • Alexander Maclaren • Volume 5, section 2, pages 245-403 • Twenty-eight sermons • Jeremiah and Lamentations • R.K. Harrison • “The Book of Jeremiah” • The New International Commentary on the Old Testament • J.A. Thompson

  5. Another set to consider for your library: THE BIBLICAL EXPOSITOR Volume II Job to Malachi Carl. F. H. Henry, ed.

  6. Helpful Reference “Jeremiah” Pages 183-4

  7. The Book of Jeremiah Arranged Topically The prophet seems to have used a simple arrangement of his material to convey an overall message to the people. Jeremiah arranged his prophecies under two themes: God’s judgment on Judah as recorded in chapters 2-45; God’s judgment on the Gentile nations as recorded in chapters 46-51.

  8. The Book of Jeremiah Arranged Chronologically

  9. The Book of Jeremiah Chronologically Arranged (cont.)

  10. Special Texts in Jeremiah • His Call (1:1-19) (Ps. 139:13-16) • Divine Inauguration (1:1-3) • Divine Election (1:4-5) • Divine Commission (1:6-10) • Note the “Moses Echo.” • “Youth” (Heb. a late teen most likely) • Divine Intention (1:11-16) • “Gates and walls” (Nehemiah?) • Divine Injunction (1:17-19) • See the following slide for some practical steps in knowing if you are “called.”

  11. You are “called” to ministry if: • you hear the Word of the Lord. • you realize that God has a plan for your life. • you accept God’s appointment to ministry. • you are willing to obey. • you are humble. • you can strike the balance between a negative and a positive ministry. • you can show courage. • you have a “killer instinct.”

  12. If you are called to ministry expect: • some or all of Jeremiah 36-38. • Including scroll burning • Including imprisonment • Including slim rations • Including the execution of a death sentence if he made his prophecy public

  13. Special Texts in Jeremiah(cont.) • The Sad State of Affairs (8:8-12) • His Psalm (17:5-8) • Cause and effect • Cause and effect (Ps. 1) • Our Hearts (17:9-10) (Ps. 139:23-24) • Job Again (20:14-18) (Job 3:1-16) “I wish I had never been born!!”

  14. Special Texts in Jeremiah(cont.) • Phony Dreamers (23:25-32) • See Deuteronomy 18:9-22 if he is errant; 13:1-5 if he is correct. • The New Covenant (31:31-37; Heb. 8:6-13) • Israel’s Millennial inwardly enabled spiritual institut- ionalization (Eze. 37; Rom. 11:25-32) • Jewish and Gentile believer current benefit realization (I Cor.11:20-26)

  15. Daniel and Jeremiah’s Prophesy • Jeremiah 25:8-38 Seventy years (Daniel 9:1-2)

  16. Jeremiah 48 • Amos 2, 3, 5 (755 B.C. approx.), Isaiah 15, 16 (740 B.C. approx.) and Jeremiah 48 (600 B.C. approx.) all possess numerous affinities to one another.In fact, Jeremiah 48 in sixteen of its verses draws upon Isaiah 15-16 twenty times.The beauty of this is that Jeremiah supports an early date for Isaiah.

  17. In the middle of the seventh century an invasion of Arab tribes overran Moab and that probably provided background for Isaiah's references. And, this is not to rule out the possibility that the poem in Isaiah 15-16 did not contain older materialreferring to occasions of which we are mostly ignorant (cf. Num. 21:25-30).

  18. Jeremiah reproduces from the Isaianic foundation fresh fulfillment of Moabite prophecies earlier delivered, making additional use of Amos and Numbers. Descendants of this despised people, Moab, could have continued to exist through absorptioninto other ethnic groups to reappear much later as Eastern Christianity just across the Jordan River.
